I have an idea...
edited December 2004 in Site Issues
I've been thinking for a while of making a CD with all the OSes and perhaps all the other stuff from WinWorld. I suppose I should get approval from you guys and the size of all the OSes, uncompressed (i.e. in their .ISO or whatever form) first. So, what do you think?
You use "CD 1" for the menu, and install of OS' like: Win 1.x-Win 98,
CD 2 for NT 4, some other OS'
CD 3: Remaining OS', then Apps
CD4: Remaining Apps (IDK if we need this one)
With CDShell, you can boot images - I was thinking to make it boot the NT4 ISOs.
And x-in-1 cd's suck! like Q said they make their own ugly setups...
And nightice, what is cdshell? and in what way it can be used to make multiboot cd-s...
Or do you mean that on your CD will be a ton of ISO images and you boot them only from boot CD? That will be even uglier than all theze x-in-1 crap
This way, you can install everything on their own, or boot from the CD and install from there (NT, DOS). Because the really old versions (1.0, 2.0) are hardcoded to look in A:, it would mount the image as A: when booting off of the CD.
And so on.
Slash - Maybe. If I have space.
I've done some figuring, and realized I don't need *everything*. Since the 95 and 98 full can also do upgrades, I can skip the upgrade versions. For OSR2, I'll use 2.1, nobody really needs IE4. For the NTs, I'll use 3.1, 3.51, and 4. No sense using the hybrids unless they fix something major (i.e. that cant be commented out of DOSNET.INF). So, here's most of the first CD. I'll try to squeeze in at least some of the NTs later.
