It seems as though people are unanimous that Mondo is very good for disaster recovery, so I decided to try to get it going as at least a first step. I did make what it afterwards said was a successful backup, but I realised as it was happening that I'd used the options unwisely. I'd intended to create a single .iso which I'd afterwards burn to a dvd, but, in the result, I made five .isos, each the size of one cd. I tried to create a single .iso out of the five by using cat, as I'd seen suggested somewhere, but couldn't boot with a dvd burnt from it. Tomorrow, I'll start again, but try to make sure I produce only one .iso.
Thanks again, Leslie
