Re: DragonFly on a Pocket (210M) CD-R?

:How difficult would it be to make a custom DFly CD that would be just enough
:to get my laptop up and running?  As long as I can restore some config files
:from a different CD, dhcp an interface, and then fetch source, I think I'd be
:ok.  I like the idea of a small restore CD for general reasons, even though I
:remember Matt saying DFly had finally outgrown one.  But I was wondering if a
:special purpose CD could be built without *too* much work.

    The answer is yes, you should be able to easily fit DragonFly onto
    one of those mini-CD's.  The main release has indeed outgrown 210MB,
    but if you build a normal release and then cd into /usr/release/root
    I'll bet you can find bunches of things in there that can be removed,
    then regenerate the ISO.
