Default g4u -> create just one boot floppy

hi

Is it possible and how it works to create just one g4u boot floppy instead of two, just for restoring a hard disk image over the network?

That is a 3rd party utility based on NetBSD, you're unlikely to find support for it on these forums.

Hi ccc,

g4u is a great tool. I'm not sure about using the floppy images as I myself usually just use an ISO CD image, but why don't you email the author and ask him? He's very approachable.

Yep, but cannot find a mail address of the autor, I've found just a mail address of mailing list.

Seriously? feyrer.de is the private domain of the author.

His email is on all of his pages including at the bottom of that page... scroll down to the very bottom.

Oh look, it's also in his copyright notice, twice!
