       bootcdflopcp - copy changes made after booting from bootcd to floppy


       bootcdflopcp [-v] [-d <device>]


       bootcdflopcp  will  copy  changes  made  in  ram  to  the  floppy disk.
       bootcdflopcp will be available as soon as your system is  running  from
       cd.   The  floppy  has  to  have  a  filesystem already. (See mke2fs or
       mformat).  If you have to boot from floppy, because  your  cd-drive  or
       bios does not support to boot from cd a msdos filesystem is used to run
       syslinux.  When bootcdflopcp is  called  it  searches  for  differences
       between RAM and CD.  For each different file, it checks if it is listed
       in the files ignore, remove or change on floppy. If  it  is  listed  in
       change  it  will  be  saved to change.tgz on floppy. If it is listed in
       remove the file will be removed from ram  next  boot  time.  If  it  is
       listed  in  ignore  it  will be ignored. If it is not listed at all you
       will be interactively asked what to do.


       -v  The option "-v" (verbose) adds messages on running.

       -d <device>
           Use another device instead of "/dev/fd0" to save changes.


              If a file is listed here the file will be deleted from ram  next
              boot time.

              If   a  file  is  listed  here  bootcdflopcp  will  save  it  in

              If a file is listed here bootcdflopcp  will  ignore  changes  to
              this file.

              Here all changed files are stored in gzipped tar format.
