Hi, I've been trying to create a pendrive (to boot off a regular PC)
with Redboot, but unfortunately without much success.
I tried to build Redboot with the PC template and the redboot packages
(via graphical configtool), the bin/ directory lists:
-rw-r--r-- 1 venator users  64K 2009-07-11 09:46 redboot.bin
-rwxr-xr-x 1 venator users 325K 2009-07-11 09:46 redboot.elf
-rwxr-xr-x 1 venator users  60K 2009-07-11 09:46 redboot.img
-rwxr-xr-x 1 venator users 5.2K 2009-07-11 09:46 romboot.elf
-rwxr-xr-x 1 venator users  256 2009-07-11 09:46 romboot.img
I tried putting each of these files on the pendrive with dd (dd if=X
of=/dev/sdb) but the pendrive does not boot.
Can you please provide some directions?
Thanks a lot
