     1036- if keyboard mapping dir (usu. /lib/kbd or /usr/lib/kbd) cannot be found then don't abort; simply tell the user the default keyboard mapping will be used
     1037- added /dev/hd[a,b,c,d][17-24] to the rootfs tarball
     1038- won't use LILO's optimizations when creating boot floppy; however, optimizations are used on CD unless --broken-bios in call to Mondo
     1039- won't write data disks to start of tape; lets Mondo do that
     1040- tweaked how Mindi moves all.tar.gz around, to make it more Mondo-friendly
     1041- tweaked Mindi's disk-splitter
     1042- user must unmount /dev/loop0 before calling Mindi: LILO insists...
     1043- added NFS-related entries to deplist.txt
     1044- if not called by Mondo then don't let user choose Interactive/Nuke/ whatever; just offer Expert

     1059- make Mindi's boot-time output more esthetically pleasing
     1060- if filesystem is type 'image', according to Mondo, then in filelist its partition type will be listed as the hexadecimal string (e.g.  'b', '83', etc.) and the partition mountpoint will be 'image'
     1061
     1062v0.50-2 (2001-12-15)

     1071
     1072v0.48-2 (2001-12-09)
     1073- when insmod'g modules from ramdisk's root dir, use 'ls /*.o*' (was 'ls /*.*') to find them
     1074- if RAID controller(s) are detected then pause for 10s to let them intialize by themselves (some 3ware RAID controllers require this)
     1075- cleaned up /sbin/init and /sbin/post-ini; the former now controls initialization of hardware, drivers, tools, etc. and the latter runs mondo-restore if it exists
     1076- better detection of and compatibility with SCSI CD-ROM drives
     1077- chopsize is now 64KB; was 128KB
     1078- cleaned up mindi's logging
     1079
     1080v0.48-1 (2001-12-08)
     1081- better logging of find-and-mount-cdrom's progress (to /tmp/mondo-restore.log)

     1083- added 'linear' to the list of modules Mindi always backs up
     1084- if called by Mondo then pass the name & device of the user's boot loader to the restore phase, by copying BOOTLOADER.* to the ramdisk
     1085- if loading from floppies then try to mount CD-ROM a 2nd time after extracting files from data floppies, just in case user is a CD user who couldn't get their CD-ROM drive to work initially
     1086- added fix to make sure /root/images/mindi is created (Charlie Root)
     1087- aware of 'iso' boot mode, for future expansion
     1088
     1089v0.47 (2001-12-04)
     1090- added /dev/cdrom/cdrom[1-4] to the devices automatically excluded from mountlist.txt
     1091- added '-f-' to the end of most tar commands, to see if it fixes a bug in some obscure Debian distros
     1092- added network-related dependencies to deplist.txt
     1093- if called by Mondo then don't write floppy images to disks; let Mondo do that: less irritating for user
     1094- if called by Mondo then do some clever tricks to add mondo-restore and its dependencies (mondo-restore is now a dynamic executable)
     1095- finally gotten klogd to squelch echoing of kernel msgs to console
     1096
     1097v0.46 (2001-11-29)
     1098- finally fixed that 'lib/modules/2.4.12-xfs not found' bug! :-D
     1099- cosmetic changes and minor bugfixes
     1100- excluded lilo.conf and lilo from deplist.txt; use user's copy instead
     1101- if your fstab mentions a RAID partition but your raidtab doesn't then Mindi will terminate in a sane manner with a sane error message
     1102- fixed a bug in bug-me (heh, how ironic)
     1103- include and run (sys)klogd to try to pipe kernel msgs to logfile
     1104- call hdparm to speed up access to CD-ROM drive
     1105
     1106v0.45 (2001-11-15)
     1107- disabled fsck.* in deplist.txt
     1108- include /etc/fstab in logfile
     1109- removed lzop.* from aux-tools; should come from user's distro anyway
     1110- tweaked data disk size and data disk formatting command
     1111- make ISO bootable image (as well as floppies) when backing up to tape
     1112- copy boot images (floppy + CD) from temp dir to /root/images/mindi after making them, just in case the user wants them later
     1113- added md5sum to deplist.txt
     1114- added pico->vi softlink to ramdisk
     1115- in the ramdisk's /etc/bashrc, added /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/sbin to the PATH= command
     1116- call insert-all-modules as background task; pause 3 seconds after calling it, before proceeding <--- /sbin/init
     1117- call to devfs has been moved to before call to post-init
     1118- added 'md5sum -> busybox' softlink
     1119- Mindi now uses busybox's printf, md5sum, mount, umount, vi ...NB: I said, 'vi' :-) Now you have an editor again! :-)
     1120- added lilo.real to deplist.txt, to allow for Debian's evil new distro
     1121- added lzop to deplist.txt
     1122- no longer including lzop in Mindi's tarball / RPM
     1123- improved Mindi's error-reporting a little bit
     1124- changed deplist.txt's /etc/* to just *
     1125- restructured the calls in /sbin/post-init that reinitialize the LVM and RAID modules
     1126- if mkfs.ext2 is not in PATH then abort
     1127- Mindi uses a 'filename cache' to speed itself up at run-time (Jean-David Marrow)
     1128- Red Hat 7.2 uses a weird /etc/issue.net; I've worked around it...
     1129- tested with Linux-Mandrake 8.0 and Red Hat 7.2
     1130
     1131v0.44 (2001-10-28)
     1132- at boot-time, activate LV's if they exist
     1133- restructured deplist.txt a bit (cosmetic change)
     1134- re-enabled fsck.* in deplist.txt
     1135- analyze-my-lvm fails gracefully if you're not using LVM but inserted the module anyway
     1136
     1137v0.43 (2001-10-21)
     1138- made Mindi work with Red Hat 6.2 and 2.2.19 kernel
     1139- if mkisofs is not found, say so; don't just say, 'an error occurred while I was trying to make an ISO image'
     1140- when formatting and writing floppies, if /dev/fd0's size is indeterminable then I'll use /dev/fd0H1440 instead
     1141- make sure xfs.o, jfs.o, reiserfs.o, ext2.o, ext3.o modules are backed up (if they exist) to boot disks
     1142- fixed a silly bug that stopped Mindi from handling its own modules properly; only affects newbie users with broken kernels (i.e. the very people that Mindi's failsafe kernel was meant to help!)
     1143- added lzop (Marcus Oberhumer's file compressor) to aux-tools.tgz
     1144- added Bruno Cornec's "--cd-recovery" patch; if user uses the switch (i.e. '--cd-recovery yes') then the CD will boot to a screen that pauses until the user types RESTORE; then, it will enter Nuke Mode
     1145- added Stephan Zegherd's "superformat" patch
     1146- failsafe kernel is now 2.4.12 with XFS, JFS and lots of SCSI modules; the addition of XFS and extensive SCSI support will increase the size of Mindi's RPM / tarball significantly but I think it's worth it
     1147- at boot-time, find out whether there are any RAID partitions; and if there are, whether they are 'started' yet; if not, run raidstart to start them at boot-time, before user can try to mount anything
     1148- Mindi's failsafe kernel & modules are handled more elegantly now; if you have raid1.o, scsi.o, etc. loaded at backup-time then Mindi finds its corresponding modules in its tarball of failsafe modules and stores them so that at boot-time you can do SCSI, RAID, etc.
     1149- removed gawk, printf from deplist.txt
     1150
     1151v0.42 (2001-10-10)
     1152- make sure lvm-mod, raid0, raid1 and raid5 modules are backed up
     1153- added 'you need a ramdisk' to FAQ
     1154- changed the slice size from 20KB to 64KB; speeds up Mindi by 25 percent and doesn't have any negative side-effects (...that I can see)
     1155- when searching for your current kernel version, do not examine a file if it does not exist (it sounds obvious, I know...)
     1156- when asking user to send me a copy of their log file, point out that it may contain info which they do not want me to see but that they are SOL unless I can actually see their log file
     1157- fixed a silly bug that would crop up when a Linux-Mandrake 8.1 user would use a devfs-enabled kernel and RAID partitions at the same time
     1158- plays nicely with devfs-enabled kernels and distros
     1159- data floppies are now 1.44MB each; boot floppy is still 1.72MB
     1160- if binutils or libbinutils is not installed, abort
     1161- fixed a bug which meant that some big files overwrote each other at backup-time and caused library-related problems are boot-time
     1162- enabled comments ('#') in deplist.txt
     1163- disabled fsck.* in deplist.txt; user may re-enable the line if s/he wants those tools available at boot-time
     1164- tested successfully with the following distros - Linux-Mandrake 8.1 and its 2.4.8, devfs-enabled stock kernel - Red Hat 7.1 and its 2.4.2 stock kernel
     1165- better at guessing the size of swap partition
     1166- drop minix tools from deplist; user can restore them if s/he wants to use the minix filesystem
     1167- don't backup _all_ cdrom modules (if backing up 'cdrom.o'); be selective! ...minor bug in ListKerneModulePaths has been fixed
     1168- if the user has two glibc libraries - one in /lib and one in /lib/i686 - then Mindi will re-jig the softlinks so that only the version in /lib is backed up, to save space on the data disks
     1169- major rewrite of the code that copies the tools and libraries from the data disks; prettier, faster and more stable (and did I mention how kind it is to your hard-working hands?)
     1170- better handling of crazy libraries and softlinks thereto
     1171- new boot-time script, 'bug-me', copies user's logs to a floppy and tells him/her to e-mail them to me if mondo-restore aborts
     1172- ignore kernels named vmlinux (note the 'X'); traditionally, kernels are named vmlinuz (note the 'Z') or something similar
     1173- no longer backup all modules to CD/tape; just backup the ones loaded at backup-time; this saves boot-time ramdisk space
     1174- removed all references to LOOPDEVICE
     1175- LVM is supported (experimental; watch this space...)
     1176- included a tarball of 'sane' /dev/loop* nodes which will be extracted and added to the boot disk; this helps maintain Mindi's backward- compatibility with non-devfs kernels and distros
     1177- when copying modules to boot or data disks, uncompress them first if they are gzipped (some distros come with compressed modules)
     1178- no longer copies all loaded modules to the 2.88 MB El Torito bootable floppy image; instead, it copies FLOPPY_MODS to the 1.72 MB image, CDROM_MODS to the 2.88 MB image, and _all_ modules that were loaded at backup-time to the data disks - supports tape streamers, in conjunction with Mondo
     1179- uses busybox's sync again; let's see if that breaks anything...
     1180- if Mondo is backing up to tape streamer then write the tape's size to /tmp/TAPESIZE and the drive's device to /tmp/TAPEDEV-LIVES-HERE on the ramdisk
     1181- floppy disk modules (ide-floppy.o and floppy.o) now are copied to the ramdisk, whether the user's kernel or the failsafe kernel is being used
     1182
     1183v0.41 (2001-09-28)
     1184- excluded *.old from the 'boot.b' list when searching for boot.b
     1185- updated Mindi's own failsafe kernel+modules to v2.4.10
     1186- added umount to deplist again
     1187- improved Mindi's support of modular kernels (esp. modular CD-ROM drive and floppy disk drives)
     1188- don't accuse Linux 2.4.10 users of having a 'buggy kernel'
     1189- restored the libc5 versions of sync and umount (dropped from deplist but also from busybox)
     1190- fixed a lot of silly bugs related to incorporating Busybox in Mindi
     1191- experimental LVM support
     1192- added 'analyze-my-lvm' script to the tarball; Mindi uses it now
     1193- able to recognize & record LVM mounts, adding them to the mountlist
     1194- added the LVM executables (listed in the lvm-0.xx-i386.rpm) to deplist.txt; they won't be added unless you have them and you won't
     1195      have them unless you're using LVM, so this is not 'bloat' IMO :)
     1196- added date and sync to deplist again
     1197- when working on LVM stuff, use 'echo y | pvcreate -ff' (was '..-f')
     1198- amended format-...-kludge to allow for mountlists with >1 spaces between cols checked the fsck.reiserfs is in deplist.txt (yes it is)
     1199- incorporated busybox 0.60-1; now, Mindi is faster at run-time and smaller at boot-time; you can fit a typical system onto 3 floppies; also, a kernel up to 1MB in size (approx.) can now be accommodated
     1200- supports kernels that have MODULAR support for CD-ROM's or floppies
     1201- Mindi copies only the loaded modules to the data disks but it copies _all_ modules to the CD, just in case
     1202- thanks to busybox your floppy-based Mindi boot disk set should now be able to accommodate a kernel of up to 1MB in size
     1203- boot into Expert Mode unless boot disk was generated by Mondo
     1204- exclude all softlinks from list of 'eligible' kernels
     1205- exclude kernels with 'vmlinux' in their names
     1206- removed A LOT of files from deplist.txt's dependency list; they are listed in deplist.removed, in case you want to put them back :-)
     1207- excludes libX11, libXext, libXi, libgtk, libgdk ALWAYS, whether you add them to deplist.txt or not; [cancel this by editing line 485]
     1208- rewrote AddFileToDir() to make it more efficient (but slower...)
     1209- strip chaff from binaries; strip comments from bash scripts; strip comments from /etc/termcap
     1210
     1211v0.40 (2001-09-16)
     1212- if you use a softlink to your CD dev, e.g. /dev/cdrecorder->scd0, then Mindi should handle it properly now (i.e. not bomb out)
     1213- if you have a large kernel & lots of modules loaded, Mindi will only copy as many modules to the ramdisk as will _fit_ on a ramdisk that will have to go alongside your kernel on a 2.88MB floppy disk
     1214- if your kernel does not support loopfs, Mindi will say so & abort
     1215- turned some warnings into fatal errors, to help the user to figure out exactly why Mindi won't work on their kernel
     1216- changed mke2fs -N24 to -N32, to see if it helps braindead distros
     1217- Mondo now tells Mindi whether or not to use its stock kernel
     1218- gone back to the old 'insert-my-modules' for now; it's more reliable
     1219- working on the 'insert-all-my-modules' script, to make it compatible with a wider range of insane distros and kernels
     1220- dropped the '-c' option from LILO call - removed cdrecord, mkisofs, vi, route and diff from deplist.txt
     1221- slowed down the 'split data between floppies' routine; made it try harder to squeeze more data onto each floppy
     1222- excluding nvidia modules from the "insert-all-my-modules" script because it sometimes causes freeze-ups
     1223- added code to copy your fstab, lilo.conf, etc. to a tarball which, in the event of an error, Mindi will ask the user to e-mail me
     1224
     1225v0.39 (2001-09-08)
     1226- plays nicely with devfs, so long as your old /dev/hdX, /dev/sdX softlinks are still there :-)
     1227- if your swap partition isn't mounted, Mindi will decide that it is 125MB; it used to abort but now it just warns & makes a good guess
     1228- testing the failsafe kernel & associated scripts
     1229- only use lilo's "-c" option if NOT a 2.88MB floppy disk image
     1230- copes better with .o, .gz, etc. module suffixes
     1231- better 'loaded modules / not loaded modules' feedback at boot-time
     1232- semi-forces isofs and ide-cd (not isofs.o and ide-cd.o); the former will be more compatible with stock kernels - e.g. Red Hat, Mandrake; also added vfat, fat & a few other modules to the list of 'foced'.
     1233- removed the '-c' switch from the call to LILO (some BIOSes don't like it very much)
     1234- removed chaff from ramdisk's /etc/login.defs, saving approx 7K
     1235- format the boot disks with -N 24 (was -N 64)
     1236- do not insist on CD #1 (at boot-time) if there is no 'CD #' marker
     1237- amend format-and-kludge-vfat; now, it will not abort if it cannot find its entry in mountlist; it doesn't need to find the entry anyway, except to check that the kludge works (which it does)
     1238- if user chooses to use Mindi's failsafe 2.4.9 kernel, Mindi will load Mindi's versions of user's modules at boot-time
     1239- make label-devices-as-necessary log its efforts
     1240- added e2label and tune2fs to deplist.txt
     1241- if you boot in Normal Mode, I'll call mondo-restore --interactive instead of just mondo-restore
     1242- replaced K7-compatible 2.4.7 kernel with a 586-comp'ble 2.4.9 kernel
     1243- improved the post-run clean-up
     1244- force the copying/loading of isofs.o and ide-cd.o, which enhances Mindi's support for kernels that have modular CD-ROM support
     1245- Interactive Mode offers to edit /tmp/mountlist.txt before running mondo-restore (good idea from F. Boon)
     1246- /dev/hd[e-h]* have been added to the ramdisk
     1247- disabled Cuckoo and Bootstrap Modes (they weren't doing anything anyway & were probably confusing some users)
     1248- removed 'edit mountlist?' question (because mondo-restore takes care of that now, via a user-friendly mountlist editor)
     1249- included a copy of mondo-manual.html
     1250- only kludge /dev/hda1 or /dev/sda1 (if vfat, of course); otherwise, use regular mkfs.vfat
     1251- use mkfs.dos if mkfs.vfat does not exist
     1252- moved some scripts from rootfs.tgz to Mondo's restore-scripts.tgz
     1253
     1254v0.38 (2001-08-18)
     1255- clarified the 'more than one kernel found' comment
     1256- updated the README to emphasize that the scripts are deprecated
     1257- when displaying mountlist on screen, make it easier to read
     1258- changed most 'echo's to 'LogIt()'s; log most screen output to /var/log/mindi.log
     1259- user can now use a stock 2.4.7 kernel (which comes with Mindi) if the user's distro's kernel isn't right for a boot disk
     1260
     1261v0.37 (2001-08-11) - changed the boot screen a little bit
     1262- changed the "cannot boot from CD-ROM" message (more informative now)
     1263- if an 'insmod'ed module cannot be found, warn but don't abort
     1264- that whole loop-mount/extract tgz to ramdisk thing --- if it fails, abort, don't try to continue; also, ask if loopfs is supported by kernel (if not, that might explain the error)
     1265- in addition to /lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules, also search /root/oss/modules for kernel modules (Phillip Deackes)
     1266- run syslog and klogd at restore-time, to pipe sys & knl messages to /tmp/mondo-restore.log
     1267- default restore-time boot mode is now 'interactive' (unless the disk is a 1.72MB, in which case default mode is still 'expert')
     1268- if CDROM can't find itself (long story, re: El Torito) then the script will say, "Your kernel is b0rken." This will reduce the number of erroneous error reports that I receive from users
     1269- working on implementing Cuckoo Mode again
     1270
     1271v0.36 (2001-08-03)
     1272- testing it with LM8, RH71 and Slack8
     1273- explicitily exluding /mnt/floppy and /floppy from mountlist.txt
     1274- warn if afio not found (Mondo needs afio)
     1275- optional --custom <temp dir> <out dir> switch added, to let the user specify where the temp dirs and created images will be stored
     1276- changed /sbin/init to install modules _before_ trying to mount CD-ROM (David Granz)
     1277- create a gawk->awk shortcut at restore-time if necessary
     1278- specifically exclude /dev/fd0h1440 and /dev/fd0H1440 from mountlist
     1279- removed silly "was CD inserted?" message
     1280
     1281v0.35 (2001-07-31)
     1282- if LILO fails, it writes its errors to the screen
     1283- use user's boot.b and LILO instead of Mindi's
     1284- tarball/RPM no longer includes boot.b or lilo
     1285- mke2fs' output will be echoed to screen, if an error occurs
     1286- doubled the -N inode allocations and removed some of the -i inode fiddles, just in case they are making Red Hat 7.1 choke
     1287
     1288v0.34 (2001-07-25)
     1289- includes patch to rid Mindi of its dependence on /dev/loop devices
     1290      (Bill Davidsen)
     1291- includes patch from 0ystein Skalsem, to fix a disk-formatting problem
     1292- warns if kernel is 2.4.0-2.4.5; encourages user to upgrade
     1293
     1294v0.33 (2001-07-20)
     1295- excludes all devices containing ':/' (i.e. NFS mountlists)
     1296- the FORMAT/SYS replacement, "format-and-kludge-vfat" now writes its logfile to /tmp/format-and-kludge-vfat.log
     1297- /etc/fstab now mounts floppies for read/write access by default
     1298- format-and-kludge-vfat should only write to log once now
     1299- added vi, top to deplist.txt
     1300- updated the rootfs.tgz's README
     1301- mountlist is written to screen as well as mountlist.txt
     1302- tested with Linux 2.4.7; works fine
     1303- changed 'mkfs' lines, to format the loop-mounted files instead of the device nodes which makes Mindi work better with kernels 2.4.6+
     1304- Mindi can now handle kernels of up to 930K in size
     1305- sped up the process of spreading data files across data disks by approx 20 percent
     1306
     1307v0.32 (2001-07-18)
     1308- software RAID is now supported
     1309- added the 'raidtools' binaries to deplist.txt
     1310- add /etc/fstab and /etc/raidtab to deplist.txt
     1311- added /dev/md* to the ramdisk's /dev directory
     1312- modified MakeMountlist() to calculate correctly the sizes of RAID partitions, if they are present in /etc/fstab
     1313- moved the 'LOOPDEVICE=...' code into the regular main() section
     1314- install-additional-tools makes a softlink '/etc/raidtab' that points to /mnt/groovy-stuff/etc/raidtab; also, '/etc/fstab.orig' that points to /mnt/groovy-stuff/etc/fstab
     1315- added line to 'install-additional-tools' that will delete the dummy modprobe before installing data from datadisk(s)
     1316- mkdir -p $outdir at the beginning, just in case...
     1317
     1318v0.31 (2001-07-16) - included DoJ's patch to make Mindi play more nicely with devfs
     1319- slightly better install.sh and README
     1320
     1321v0.30 (2001-07-15)
     1322- added klogd and syslogd to deplist.txt
     1323- can now cope with Red Hat's "LABEL=" entries in /etc/fstab
     1324- should ignore NFS-mounted partitions now
     1325
     1326v0.29 (2001-07-14)
     1327- stopped the 'modprobe' errors that used to occur at the beginning; they didn't mean anything but they did worry some novice users
     1328- removed losetup from rootfs.tgz (wasn't doing anything useful)
     1329- removed the 'txt-or-gui' stuff from Mindi (never used it anyway)
     1330- added clear to deplist.txt
     1331- moved rootfs.tgz's "mondo/" scripts to Mondo's "restore-scripts.tgz" tarball; tarball will be untarred and contents added to the data disks at run-time, if Mindi finds the tarball
     1332- if user lacks fd0u1722 but has fd0h1722 then use the latter
     1333- boot-up msg is more informative
     1334- fixed obscure bug in find-and-mount-cdrom
     1335- better at coping with hda1/2/3/4 (normal people use hda1/5/6/7 but if you really want to exhaust your primaries, well hey, your life)
     1336- the 'outstring sucks!' message is now more informative
     1337
     1338v0.28 (2001-07-07)
     1339- if AddFileToDir() is called with a file that does not exist, Mindi warns but does not abort
     1340- should work with gzipped modules (which end in '.o.gz') and NVidia modules (which don't end in anything)
     1341- should work with Red Hat's issue.net now
     1342- misc. cosmetic changes to Mondo boot-time and restore-phase scripts, to make the visual output cleaner & more legible
     1343- insist-on-cd retracts the CD tray after asking for next CD, in case the user did not close the drive before pressing <enter>
     1344- if unable to create 1.72MB boot disk then warn but do not abort
     1345- put creation date on the boot-up screen
     1346- create data disks with tarballs up to 1700KB in size; tries harder to fill each data disk to the brim
     1347- changed the call to make ext3 partitions; now, it uses a call to mkfs -t ext3 -j -Jsize=10 -q <device> (as requested by ext3 manual)
     1348- tested w/ext3; works fine
     1349- install-additional-tools doesn't call sync until after all softlinks have been finalized; that's to make sure we call the _right_ sync
     1350- ramdisk is now (size of all files in data disks PLUS 8192) KB
     1351- RPM and SRPM published
     1352- mount CDROM at start of untar-me, just in case it wasn't mounted
     1353- when restoring selectively, log the archives that have matches & the number of matches (inc. if zero)
     1354
     1355v0.26 (2001-07-05)
     1356- has been tested with XFS, JFS, ReiserFS, ext2 and vfat
     1357- compatible (but not tested) with ext3
     1358- better at finding your kernel, even if you have several kernels of the same version (now checks the build date, too)
     1359- better file-spreading algorithm; a little faster; much more reliable
     1360- includes a copy of LILO, to make the boot disks properly
     1361- tells you how big the tarballs are, when it assembles them
     1362- compare-me uses 'insist-on-cd' instead of internal subroutine
     1363- it looks as if Mindi can actually cope with 920K kernels now :)
     1364- fixed some silly multi-CD bugs that would stop big files from being restored if they were spread across CD's
     1365
     1366v0.25 (2001-07-04)
     1367- uses its own copy of lilo
     1368- removed all "~" (backup copies) from rootfs.tgz
     1369- updated the rootfs's README - stablilo-me, not hack-me
     1370- improved the formatting of the lilo.conf as it is created
     1371- replace all libc5 tools with libc6 (user's) tools at restore-time
     1372- added diff to deplist.txt
     1373- copy io.sys and msdos.sys (if found) to data disk(s) at run-time; softlinks them to /*.sys at boot-time
     1374- fixed some vfat formatting-related issues w/Embleer (always tricky); the kludge's error-handling is better and its exit is more graceful
     1375- say 'type nuke to restore automatically' in msg if Mondo called me
     1376- backup all modules, not just the ones present/loaded at run-time; the loaded modules go on boot disk but ALL go on data disk
     1377- reduced the max data per disk from 1700 to 1680, to suit ext2's needs
     1378- DidMondoCallMe() replaces 'ps ax | grep | blah blah'
     1379- includes user's /etc/termcap and /usr/bin/pico on disk(s)
     1380- cosmetic changes to restore-time scripts (spaces, newlines, etc.)
     1381- pipe kernel's msgs to /var/log/messages
     1382- make sure /etc/lilo.conf is 600 (RW by root only)
     1383
     1384v0.24 (2001-07-03)
     1385- can accommodate a kernel >900KB in size
     1386- generates lilo.conf on-the-fly; no default/template file anymore
     1387- copies io.sys and msdos.sys to the CD (if you have them)
     1388- add the embleer tarballs to mindi-0.xx.tgz, so that users can format and make bootable msdos/Win9x partitions
     1389- added printf and hdparm to deplist.txt
     1390- incorporated Bruno Cornec's Mondo 0.991 scripts in Mindi
     1391- separated README into README, INSTALL and TODO
     1392- fixed silly {ramdisk}/sbin/InsistOnCD bug
     1393- took out mke2fs and libext from rootfs.tgz
     1394- rootfs.tgz's "/etc/bashrc" now includes /usr/share/mindi
     1395- compare-mode uses IDE optimization to speed things up
     1396- don't quibble over resizing partitions if <2MB difference
     1397- fixed silly InsistOnCD bug
     1398
     1399v0.23 (2001-07-02)
     1400- don't copy *.mdsg to boot floppy image
     1401- fixed erroneous 'cannot make ISO image' error message
     1402- can accommodate a kernel as large as 890K
     1403- now uses lilo, not syslinux (lilo works better w/2.88MB boot images)
     1404- creates & formats disk images on the fly (no more .img.gz templates)
     1405- boot disks are formatted ext2, like the data disks
     1406- creates 1.72MB and El Torito 2.88MB boot floppies/images
     1407- if called by Mondo, doesn't list images or offer to copy to FDD/CDRw
     1408- includes the distro's name and kernel version in LILO's message
     1409
     1410v0.22 (2001-07-01)
     1411- don't add a ramdisk; use rootfs & that's it
     1412- dependency-calculator runs approx. twice as fast as in v0.20
     1413- tested with Linux Mandrake 8.0; works well, if you recompile kernel to include floppy disk support (which LM8's kernel does not)
     1414- supports bigger kernels now, up to 900K in size
     1415- deplist.txt may now include directories, not just files
     1416- ignores kernel filenames that are hyperlinks
     1417- uses awk instead of gawk; drop the awk/gawk-finding thing
     1418- uses gzip, not bzip2; dropped bzip2, mv, ls to make rootfs smaller
     1419- copies user's /dev/fd0* devices to boot disk
     1420- calls Mindi's copy of syslinux, not user's copy
     1421- use modules' paths, e.g. instead of just 'insmod fubar', use 'insmod /lib/modules/2.4.5-ac117/vfat/fubar.o'
     1422- in boot.msg, XXXXX is part 1 of the 2nd line, YYYYY is part 2 of the 2nd line, and ZZZZZ is Mindi's version# (in the 1st line)
     1423
     1424v0.21 (2001-06-30)
     1425- df, du, find, lsmod, rmmod have been removed from rootfs.tgz
     1426- at boot-time, inserts kernel modules w/user's original parameters
     1427- deletes the slices after recombining them & restoring the files
     1428- includes the MINDI_VER version number in boot.msg
     1429- if boot disk is too small, lists the files & which one is too big
     1430- syslinux now waits 10 seconds before booting floppy
     1431- 'insert-all-my-modules' is copied to rootfs, not to a data disk
