Boot floppies web-4.0

Available boot floppies

Released on 10 April 2012, needs 24Mb RAM

This floppy set will boot a SliTaz stable web 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, a USB port and a 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.

This floppy set uses the BIOS instead of the linux driver. You can boot SliTaz using unsupported floppy drives such as some PCMCIA devices.

The web version of 4.0 is launched by default - the filesystem is mounted from the web. You can select memtest or ipxe with the up, down and enter keys (the boot menu is built with this tool).

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 64KB) and you will be prompted to insert the next floppy, fd002.img. And so on up to fd003.img.

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.

Anyhow 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
# ...
