Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 121077
FC2 release notes -- installation bits
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:40 EST
1) There is now an images/diskboot.img file in the tree. This can be
written to a USB pen drive with dd and booted if your BIOS supports
booting off of USB devices.
2) SELinux is disabled by default. Boot with 'selinux' to enable
3) CD ejecting bit can go if it's still there (I didn't see it) since
they should eject now
Jeremy -- thanks for the info.
About #1 -- is this arch-specific in any way?
The image exists in both i386 and x86-64 directories, and I have
noticed my Opteron motherboard supports USB booting. So hardware
support depends entirely on the motherboard BIOS support.
It's for both i386 and x86_64, so not arch specific in the context of
Here's what I have -- sound ok?
For systems capable of booting from a USB device, Fedora Core 1.91
Test 2 includes an image file designed for use with USB pen drives (or
other bootable media with a capacity larger than a diskette drive).
The file is diskboot.img, and is present in the images/ directory on
CD-ROM 1. Use the dd command to write the image.
The ability to use this image file with a USB pen drive depends on the
ability of your system's BIOS to boot from a USB device.
BTW, being the picky docs person I am, I checked the README in images/
to make sure it mentioned this file, but you beat me to it... :-)
Yep, sounds good. Thanks Ed.
Super -- thanks for the feedback!
