Posted by johnmarranca on Dec. 01 2003,15:13OK...I have figured out how to backup configs to the floppy drive with no problems, but how do you restore it once you reboot? Is this possible? When I reboot, the archive is zipped into a .tgz file. What am I missing?

Thank you for the help. I TRIED "knoppix restore" the first time, but I received an error. So, I tried again last night, and it worked. Maybe it was me....well...OK...it PROBABLY was, but nonetheless, I'm thrilled that there is a way (much like Basiclinux 1.8+) to save tedious settings.
