Okay then, I just uploaded the latest build of my Urlwitzer(R) Distro
to:

www.gus.to/urlwitzer187.iso
(size is 304604320 bytes)

Also pickup:

www.gus.to/uwguide.rtf

which is some documentation on how to install it (in RTF format;
wordpad will open it).

The quick overview:

You need a PC with:
128MB RAM
bootable CD-ROM drive
Ethernet NIC (connected to DHCP network with Internet gateway)
big hard disk

The NIC needs to be supported by Linux, which means just about anything
will work. It doesn't need a keyboard, mouse, or monitor (though you
might want to attach the latter during installation). An 800MHz
machine will encode at about 1:1 speed (it uses LAME), and most
run-of-the-mill CD-ROM drives will rip at between 3x and 6x.

BE CAREFUL with the CD-ROM -- after 30 seconds, it initializes and
reformats the hard disk of the machine it boots in!

Feedback / questions welcome, of course.

Eric.

Downloaded the file twice, but it does not seem to be a regular .iso file.
Neither UltraISO, Daemon Tools nor VMWare did recognize it.

Yes, it looks somehow damaged. The first 41K or so is all 0x00. I
can't mount it.

Hi

I'm currently installing URLWitzer on VMWare. One problem, though...

This must be IDE, not SCSI? Anaconda stopped with an error talking about
hda. But VMWare installs SCSI devices by default.

Second try: "Could not allocate requested partitions: partitioning failed.
Could not allocation partitions as primary partitions". Do we have to
partition it manually?
