OmniBoot v1.5

All modifications
are done by scripts which are part of the module-configuration file. They are not executed manually or seperately but remotely by the om-script during build or rebuild of OmniBoot.

Ultimate Boot-CD:
All docu-files are copied from inside the boot-image to the folder docu/txt in OmniBoot-root for easier user access. A few tools are removed but an additional section with floppy tools is available. The menu is rearranged, mainly separating harddisk manufacturer tools from manufacturer independent tools. It gets stripped down to the DOS-part while all non-dos tools can be found in OmniBoot/Tools-menu. Also OmniBoot doesn't feature booting via grub4dos. Instead you can select various national keyboards at boottime, a feature added to the UBCD following a previous OmniBoot hack that became obsolete that way (Thanks to Victor Chew, author of the UBCD)

Hiren's life XP:
Two modules are created from Hiren's Boot-CD, stripping it down to the life-XP part. One module is a minimal version searching for a batch-file on a smb-server to run ghost from there. It could run anything but for this initial purpose it was named hbghost. The other one, module "hbcd", contains a slightly reduced software selection of the original Hiren's life-XP but is able to update any of the 7z-files within the CD from the folder isostore/HBCD/Files (folder is case sensitive, the files there are not!).

The non-readable iso which is not bootable via Syslinux/Memdisk is replaced by a compatible superfloppy-image (50MB). On it the Universal Boot-CD bootfloppy has become the boot-OS for XF-DOS. The (ubcd-)NW-Boot-Disk menu and the Volkov-Commander are linked to the XF-DOS Desktop.

The ramdisk is replaced by the bigger one distributed in the netinstall-iso, making Fedora PXE-capable due to the network drivers missing in the original distribution's ramdisk.

The ramdisk is recreated including all network drivers and some other system-files, making it PXE-capable. This requires the cloop kernel module which is only available in Knoppix, Debian and openSUSE.

Nano Linux:
The ramdisk is recreated including all modules that come with the life CD. Also international keyboard support upon boot is added.

The ramdisk is recreated including all network drivers, making it PXE-capable. For pxe-booting the flags "load=", "noload=" and "from=" get parsed due to a modification in initrfs.img//lib/livekitlib, which makes pxe-booting now equally flexible as booting from a local filesystem. Even better the same code boots aswell from pxe as from any local filesystem.

Geexbox and Puppy:
The root-filesystem is integrated into the initial ramdisk, enabling easy PXE-boot. In Geexbox and DSL the init-script is altered to make this modification working.

4 so called flavors are distributed with OmniBoot as add-on-fs depending on Slitaz 5.0. 3 and 4 are delivered as extra modules and are integrated in CD and DVD-A, the others are yet contained in OmniBoot-base.
1. pxesrv.gz,
added tftp-hpa 0.40 replacing busybox-tftp-services, added nfs-server, nbd-server and samba-server from Slitaz packages, start-up script takes some values from /boot/server.cfg and the kernel command-line.
2. obextra.gz,
adding grsync, gftp, gsmartcontrol, additional locale data and desktop links for gtk-applications from Slitaz packages.
3. thinclient.gz,
adding noVNC and tsclient from Slitaz packages.
4. compiler.gz,
large compilation of Slitaz packages for compiling

Tiny Core Linux:
Two additional add-on filesystems are provided for the ramdisk. And the original core.gz has also been modded.
1. core.gz: Enhances the text-mode boot with shell utilities like midnight commander, bash, ntfsprogs, dosfstools, mkisofs-tools, e2fsprogs, mtools, util-linux and national keyboard support.
2. corex.gz: Brings the GUI with additional firmwares and additional locale support.
3. plus.gz: Adding lots of GUI-apps, including gftp, gparted, grsync, isomaster, leafpad (editor), pcmanfm (filemanager) and opera.
