    SubjectBootable CD idea
    Date
    Just a random idea that occurred to me...

    Since the El-Torito bootable CD standard supports multiple floppy
    images on a single CD, it would be possible to write a script that
    takes a .config file, and the source to, say all the -pre and -rc
    versions of a particular kernel, compiles multiple kernels with the
    same .config, and writes a CD with them all on, set to boot from an
    arbitrary disk partition.

    It would make:

    > > > Foo doesn't work in -rc2
    > > Did it work in -rc1
    > Not sure

    E-Mail exchanges a thing of the past.

    Note, that as each floppy image is separate, it's not the same as
    trying to cram multiple kernels on a 2.88 MB floppy image, and is
    therefore actually do-able :-).

    John.
