|Post subject:||Just a Few Questions|
Sorry I'm still kind of new, I had a copy of UBCD 4.1.1 used it, loved it, trying to get a new copy (accidentily left mine at a customers)
Here are is Question:
I want to add a few images, I think I have it done for 4.1.1 but just realized after trying 5 times that it doesn't support my usb keyboard and mouse so I can't test it.
if I add the proper images in with the custom.cfg and add the following lines to custom.cfg it should work right?
MENU INCLUDE /menus/defaults.cfg
MENU LABEL ..
MENU LABEL NTCD 2.5.1
LABEL DMI 05
MENU LABEL DMI05
MENU LABEL DMI06
MENU LABEL DMI07
MENU LABEL DMI08
LABEL DMI08 rev. b
MENU LABEL DMI08 Rev B
MENU LABEL DMI09
LABEL HDD DMI
MENU LABEL HDD DMI
MENU LABEL Win98
MENU LABEL Win98 SE
MENU LABEL Win98 ME
I do a lot of warranty HP/Compaq repair and replace MB's so the DMI are Tattoo utilities that allow me to update the new MB so their restore disks will recognize the system, I'd prefer not to carry 11 different CD's, plus call me old fashioned but I still need the occassional Win98 boot disk
will this custom.cfg work?
I also have an old DOS GUI Ghost.exe I've had forever, how can I get to load mouse drivers (USB and PS/2) for it?

Your config file should work.
Enable "USB legacy support' in your BIOS to have a working USB keyboard when you enter the Syslinux Menu (and DOS-based tools).

The only mention of USB in the bios is boot or no boot, it is set to accept bootable usb drives, there is no "enable legacy support"
It will boot to UBCD411 from a usb stick and all then let me hit enter at the
boot: prompt, then the menu loads, and POOF keyboard quits
works fine in UBCD5.0RC1 just more familiar with 4.11

If it works fine in UBCD50, then the problem with UBCD411 is due to an to old version of Syslinux.
Changelog Syslinux 3.70:
# Change to the A20 algorithm which *MIGHT* help systems that have systems which freeze when Syslinux is used with USB keyboards. Note that this has been hard do verify, so I would greatly appreciate feedback on it.
So if you update all files of the Syslinux package on UBCD to a newer version (at least v3.70, but you better use the last version), your keyboard should work.

but how do I got about doing that, I downloaded syslinux 3.84 but don't know how to change it on the disk do I just replace the files or do I have to "compile" something?
not real Linux savvy

Just replace all files in /syslinux (exept ldlinux.sys) and /isolinux.
Then run the Syslinux installer on your USB stick again:
- Open the Command Prompt (type "cmd" in the "Run As..." dialog
- Drag and drop syslinux.exe (/win32 dir of Syslinux) to the Command Prompt window
- Add "-ma -d /syslinux X:" (replace X: with the right drive letter for your USB stick)
It should look similar to this:
C:\syslinux.exe -ma -d /syslinux X:
If you don't get any text output, the installation went fine.
