SuperDuper Install CD

When network installation switched from booting from a floppy, to booting from a CD, a thought was hatched. Why waste a whole CD on just a couple of megabytes. Let's add more stuff to it so that it can really be useful. Connie Sieh then managed to put together, what we call, the SuperDuper Install CD.

This is a bootable CD, where you get to select what image you want to boot into. It is small enough that you can fit the whole SuperDuper disk onto a 210 MB CD (Those are the small CD's).

When you boot into the SuperDuper CD, you can select to boot into the following images
