Now (31. december 2003) is kernel v2.6 out and NTFS filesystem is supported. So, it would be great if there could be come out also System Rescue CD with kernel 2.6 to have write support for NTFS filesystem. Then there are all major filesystems supported by read/write acces.

We cannot update the kernel to 2.6.0 because the cloop module we need is not yet ported to this kernel version. cloop is very important, because it allows to mount the compressed loopback file system (sysresccd.dat).

And what about implementing the new NTFS driver which has been backported to Linux Kernel 2.4.24 (see : http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/status.html) ? It could be a solution to the cloop problem...

I really don't know how the NTFS driver could replace cloop...

thier are newer live cd fs

http://www.filesystems.org/project-unionfs.html

Union fs was designed to take the place of cloop
Unionfs 2.x is now part of Andrew Morton's -mm tree, as of January 9, 2007.

unionfs can also use an image cashe or even sync to a livefs drive i/e
live cd to a hard drive

Simular to a knoppix install .

this can be handy if you wish to sync live cd to a usb stick and or add things to a usb stick for live cd builds etc.

sysresccd-1.1.x comes with aufs which is far better (more stable than unionfs)
