Im having problems going in and out and figuring out where things are. I have looked high and low (really I have). Is there not a list I can print out to show what tools are under what heading. eg. Disk Tools/Some tool or Motherboard Tools/CPU Test or what ever. In other words sort of of a map. I understand why you cant have a menu per say like in the windows version, but a tree of where each of the tools is would be helpfull. Is there anything like this that someone can point me to.

Right now you have to either know what is on the disk and where they are. Or just hunt and peck around.

thanks
Regards

Currently there isn't such a thing, but you can make it yourself.

Open the main.cfg file in /menus/:
Code:
MENU INCLUDE /menus/defaults.cfg
LABEL mainboard
      MENU LABEL Mainboard Tools
      KERNEL menu.c32
      APPEND /menus/mboard.cfg
LABEL harddisk
      MENU LABEL Hard Disk Tools
      KERNEL menu.c32
      APPEND /menus/hdd.cfg
LABEL filesys
      MENU LABEL Filesystem Tools
      KERNEL menu.c32
      APPEND /menus/filesys.cfg
LABEL others
      MENU LABEL Other Tools
      KERNEL menu.c32
      APPEND /menus/others.cfg
LABEL custom
      MENU LABEL User-defined Tools
      KERNEL menu.c32
      APPEND /custom/custom.cfg
LABEL bootdisks
      MENU LABEL DOS/Linux Boot Disks
      KERNEL menu.c32
      APPEND /menus/bootdsk.cfg
LABEL boothdd0
    MENU LABEL *Boot First Hard Disk
    KERNEL chain.c32
    APPEND hd0
LABEL boothdd1
    MENU LABEL *Boot Second Hard Disk
    KERNEL chain.c32
    APPEND hd2

You can see that the first menu "Mainboard Tools", points to the file /menus/mboard.cfg. Open it:
Code:
MENU INCLUDE /menus/defaults.cfg
LABEL back
   MENU LABEL ..
   KERNEL menu.c32
   APPEND /menus/main.cfg
LABEL mboard1
   MENU LABEL CPU Tests
   KERNEL menu.c32
   APPEND /menus/mboard1.cfg
LABEL mboard2
   MENU LABEL Memory Tests
   KERNEL menu.c32
   APPEND /menus/mboard2.cfg
LABEL mboard3
   MENU LABEL Peripherals Tools
   KERNEL menu.c32
   APPEND /menus/mboard3.cfg
LABEL mboard4
   MENU LABEL CPU Information
   KERNEL menu.c32
   APPEND /menus/mboard4.cfg
LABEL mboard5
   MENU LABEL System Information
   KERNEL menu.c32
   APPEND /menus/mboard5.cfg
LABEL mboard6
   MENU LABEL Benchmark Tools
   KERNEL menu.c32
   APPEND /menus/mboard6.cfg
LABEL mboard7
   MENU LABEL BIOS Tools
   KERNEL menu.c32
   APPEND /menus/mboard7.cfg

Now the first useful menu is: "CPU Tests". Open it:
Code:
MENU INCLUDE /menus/defaults.cfg
LABEL back
   MENU LABEL ..
   KERNEL menu.c32
   APPEND /menus/mboard.cfg
LABEL cpuburnin
   MENU LABEL CPU Burn-in V1.00
   KERNEL /boot/cpustres
   APPEND initrd=/boot/cpustres.gz ubcd=cpuburn
LABEL stresscpu
   MENU LABEL StressCPU 20021024 (requires CPU with SSE)
   KERNEL /boot/cpustres
   APPEND initrd=/boot/cpustres.gz ubcd=stresscpu
LABEL mprime
  MENU LABEL Mersenne Prime Test V23.9/24.14
   KERNEL /boot/cpustres
   APPEND initrd=/boot/cpustres.gz ubcd=mprime

If you look at the hierarchy of those files you can make the menu.
Code:
* Mainboard Tools:

   - CPU Tests:
      ° CPU Burn-in V1.00
      ° StressCPU 20021024 (requires CPU with SSE)
      ° Mersenne Prime Test V23.9/24.14

   - Memory Tests:

   - Peripherals Tools:

   - CPU Information:

   - System Information:

   - Benchmark Tools:

   - BIOS Tools:

* Hard Disk Tools:

* Filesystem Tools:

* Other Tools:

* User-defined Tools:

* DOS/Linux Boot Disks:

Thanks for the clarification.

I wonder if some simple thing with sed or something could automatically extract the data ?

Thanks.
