|I got it working in a slightly different way, using existing grub (modiying the .conf file) from existing Fedora installation, and copying cd contents to hdb1 (partition on added HD). I couldn't use the install script cause it only works to hda.|
Boot process works fine, but it spends a while, just after the big DSL logo, looking for the CDROM. Anyway to get rid of this as it wastes a bit of time?
Here is the bottom half of my grub.conf file:
title Fedora Core (2.6.11-1.1369_FC4)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
title DSL-frugal-base-norestore (hdb1)
kernel /boot/isolinux/linux24 root=/dev/hdb1 base norestore
title DSL-frugal-toram-mydsl-restore (hdb2)
kernel /boot/isolinux/linux24 root=/dev/hdb2 toram mydsl=hdb2 restore=hdb2
Thanks for any suggestions on getting rid of that wait time.
ps. AwPhuch, if your backing up other files too (such as a XF86Config-4 file), you still need to backup and not just use a persistent home. Thanks to the OP though, I didn't realise that the persistent home to HD thing existed!
