# E-scripts on installing Potato from some messy CDs
#
# Note 1: use the eev command (defined in eev.el) and the
# ee alias (in my .zshrc) to execute parts of this file.
# Executing this file as a whole makes no sense.
#
# Note 2: be VERY careful and make sure you understand what
# you're doing.
#
# Note 3: If you use a shell other than zsh things like |&
# and the for loops may not work.
#
# Note 4: I always run as root.
#
# Note 5: some parts are too old and don't work anymore. Some
# never worked.
#
# Note 6: the definitions for the find-xxxfile commands are on my
# .emacs.
#
# Note 7: if you see a strange command check my .zshrc -- it may
# be defined there as a function or an alias.
#
# Note 8: the sections without dates are always older than the
# sections with dates.

# I got a small scratch partition in /dev/hdd3; now the trick is to
# use a loop device to simulate a root floppy and to use it to install
# a base system at /dev/hdd3, taking the base files from a dir
# somewhere at /big that fakes the installation CD; then I pack the
# contents of /dev/hdd3 in a file to avoid having to run the boot
# floppies again, and then I try to make the base system install a
# full system from the fake CD.

# Run dbootstrap on a loopdev-mounted root floppy.
