P.S., I cannot get mtools because Puppy doesn't have it. I just now used RDsave from the Kolibrios floppy to copy the image to the hard drive. My question is now making it bootable.
It isn't as easy as simply editing GRUB Config files, isn't it...
I thought so
These instructions in install.txt are really confusing. For example, do I have to use HDLoad at all? Or is that just for DOS/Windows users?
What do DOS/Windows users have to use, what do Linux users have to use, and what do Kolibrios Live Floppy users have to use?
Can you install Kolibrios from inside the Kolibrios Live Floppy itself? If you can run HD\mtldr_install from inside the Kolibrios operating system, then what commands do you put into the Kolibrios terminal...
...And that brings me to yet another question: What IS the Kolibrios terminal? Is it zsh, ash, bash, or is it not anything like any Linux or DOS terminal, with a whole new set of commands?
I'm sorry, there's just so many questions.
I started reading the book on FASM inside the Kolibrios image, but I guess I have a lot more learning to do about basic stuff.
I've been using Linux for a year now. Before that, I was only a point and click Windows user. Now, I've dabbled in the following Oses: Syllable, BSD, Linux, Beos, Visopy, Triangle OS, and Menuet. I'm like a kid in a candy store, learning about the vast world outside of Windows and Mac. Because I learn more that way. Generally, though, I don't like to learn the more important things of an operating system until I can run it from the hard drive, because only then can I really use it, like change things and re-write things and so on. In one year, learned a whole lot of new things, like what chmod 777 means. It means make it read, write, executable for all possible users. I just learned that from a tutorial and tried it for install.sh.
I then ran "sh install.sh" from inside Puppy. It gave me a number of records in and a number of records out. That's all. No Gui interface or wizard to place an image on a hard disk. I wonder if it's supposed to do that or not.
At first, I used only FAT32 partitions on the disk and tried to install the image from inside the Kolibrios floppy itself. I originally wanted to dedicate the entire hard drive to Kolibri.
But the directions seemed to keep pointing me toward Windows and Linux, so I assumed it was meant to be installed to either a dual partitioned hard drive or a hard drive that was connected to some kind of network with another OS running, Mac, Windows, or Linux. So I repartitioned the hard drive to see if I could install it from Linux.
