This article tries to provide a manual way to have QNX installed under FAT partition, with or without burning a CD.

It is a RedHat 7.3 workstaion with all ext2/3 partitions. I created a new FAT partition and temporarily mounted it as /mnt/dos. The ISO file is mounted as /mnt/cdrom. dd is used to create the boot floppy from /mnt/cdrom/install/floppy.144 Everything else is pretty much following the article except when creating the root.qfs I used “wine /tmp/dinitw32.exe root.qfs 1500”. Hope there will be a Linux version of “dinit”. 2003-11-26 3:31 pm Good article, I personally enjoyed the option to try out Qnx from within Windows, I couldn’t get it installed onto it’s own partition so it gave me an opportunity to try it out. (not that i don’t know how to install onto my own partition, at the time my bios wouldn’t read my entire harddrive so I used third party software in the mbr that booted my OS and allowed me to use the entire harddrive) Great OS, great UI, I just have no need for it at this time 2003-11-26 4:19 pm I culd try and find out but … Can you say the size of the current iso ? (Dave that’s a pretty nice turn around !) 2003-11-26 4:34 pm http://www.openqnx.com/Article116.html It has the cksum and md5sum of the current ISO. the 2nd number in cksum is the size. 2003-11-26 7:26 pm Thanks.
