Available boot floppies

Released on 10 April 2012, needs up to 128Mb RAM

This floppy set will boot a Slitaz stable loram version. You can write floppies with SliTaz bootfloppybox, Windows rawrite or simply dd:

# dd if=fd001.img of=/dev/fd0

If you have a CD-ROM, an USB port and an USB key or a network card, but you can't boot these devices directly, then try floppy-grub4dos first. This 1.44Mb floppy provides tiny programs to boot these devices without BIOS support and some other tools.

You can start with one of the 4 following flavors :

Start your computer with fd001.img. It will show the kernel version string and the kernel cmdline line. You can edit the cmdline. Most users can just press Enter.

The floppy is then loaded into memory (one dot each 64k) and you will be prompted to insert the next floppy, fd002.img.

The loram bootstrap will then start and you will be prompted to insert extra floppies for base, justx and core flavors. You can bypass this by using Q and Enter.

Each floppy set detects disk swaps and can be used without a keyboard.

Good luck.

ISO image floppy set

The floppy image set above includes an embedded installer and can install SliTaz on your hard disk.

Anyway you may want these ISO images to install SliTaz

You can restore the ISO image on your hard disk using :

# dd if=/dev/fd0 of=fdiso01.img
# dd if=/dev/fd0 of=fdiso02.img
# ...
# cat fdiso*.img | cpio -i

Images generation

All these floppy images are built with bootfloppybox from a core or a 4in1 iso. The loram is preprocessed by tazlitobox (Low RAM tab). These tools are available since 3.0. You can extract the kernel, cmdline and rootfs files with this tool
