(Random notes relating to random discussions ...)

05 Feb 2013

Recent releases of Centos simply point to Red Hat for documentation -

RHEL 6 system setup - - probably most useful for reference & details as necessary (not "memorize the whole thing" reading!)

Likewise, the RHEL 6 "installation guide" - - is useful when installing on one's own hardware - but is not entirely relevant when setting up on a VPS!

The RHEL 6 "security guide" -

Linode provides some concise guides relating to their VPS systems - and

(a large part of the Linode documentation is specific to their VPS deployment system - is a useful entry point if curious about how their system works).

(older random notes ...)

"the "erased state" for flash is when it is filled with all 1's."

RE: issue of booting USB w/o BIOS support, please see You'd need an HD floppy disk for this.

quoting --------------

Floppy image set

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

  1. 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 [1] first. This 1.44Mb floppy provides tiny programs to boot these devices without BIOS support and some other tools.

To find out what you can do as far as editing this page, please see [[2]]
