    no its a boot disk not windows 98 i wont distribute windows.

    thnx for the support guys :) @ lotus give it another try in a day or so then white lotus

    @KieranD when you start the ftp my server starts out low then it gradually gives you more speed :)

    @ scrizz how do you like it?


    Sorry guys Doom and decent will not be included their "install" games their is no way around getting them to boot...unless i installed them to my dive and used the executables and other files the installer made however i run a 64bit os so the installer doesnt work for me perhaps sometime in the future.


    as for now though some of my beta testers have gotten back to me and all bugs as of right now have been repaired and will be available in the next beta release :) as im sure you dont want to wait to play those games :p


    thought these may intrest you official list of games included

    I added the credits if youd like to take a look

    its in a zip file because its .rtf (wordpad) for formatting and the file manager does not support RTF

    thanks to all for your help

    UPDATE iv come to the conclusion their will be no more beta versions thanks to my beta testers though i would like more imput i have come top the conclusion it is stable and ready for final build...the updates for the final release can be seen on post #1 under "Final Version Updates" this list is all updates included in the final release.

    thank you very much for your support i ask all members if you are willoing to add a link to this thread to your signature titled "Solaris Utility DVD 3.0" and to all of you already supporting me please update your sigs to this thread and NOT my older version thank you

    for all those wondering their will be 3 hosts and possibly more if you have your own web site and would like to host throw me a PM keep in mind however this may be a popular file it it is big your bandwidth will probably be used quite a bit.

    TPU
    LG3
    LoG

    POSSIBLY
    Download.com
    majorgeeks
    torrent
    VR zone
    more to come

    thank you to all of you who have given thanks...iv worked extreely hard on this project even worked on it dispite the fact that the beta was brought to you by a hospital connection were my grandother was dying of stage 4 terminal i appreciate the support and id really like you to use this iv made this disk for TPU users for years my only hope is that it will help you like it should this disk is bootable like may have requested in the threads of my older version and it has alot more programs you can use for your rig..my 1 wish is that you will look to my disk as a life saver device something you can always count on.

    -Id like your thoughts of the beta version
    -Id like to know who DL'd it
    -Id like to know if you will use this
    -Id like to know if you will want a bought copy
    -Id like to know if you have already burned this to a disk
    -Id like to know what else you would like included
    -Id like to have your support

    Not sure how to create virtual machines to use in vmware, i suppose i could use virtual pc to make the machines and use em in vmware player but its a bit OTT.
    I dont want to pay or sign up for anything thats what swayed me from using vmware so i just used free-bee MS virtual pc 2007.

    Tested the 1st beta and its a pretty good package, could do with hdd regenerator if you can squeeze it in tho, this would be a time saver as i dont like having multiple disks lying around.

    I couldnt find the games tho how sad :laugh:

    DSL linux was fine so was ubuntu some of the other apps i dont know how to use lol i liked the free DOS tho could come in handy if i needed DOS instead of running a DOS emulator some other apps like the motherboard apps are really useful.

    Let us know if you can include HDD Regenerator.
    Are there any defrag tools included?
    Oh and If you could include maybe Xubuntu, DSL is nice and small but it looks like shit.
    How about including Beneath a Steel Sky?
    This is a boot only programs disk?

    This will be a life saver disk for me anyway as i hate trawling on my second pc for apps if my main rig wont boot.

    i will try to add hdd regenerator

    the games werent included in the beta they were an after thought added to the final version

    i will try to incorporate beneath a blue steel sky but space on the disk is becoming very limited...my DVD's are labled 4.7GB but i can only burn 4.3 if this isnt an issue for the rest of you i wont worry about it but i NEED TO KNOW

    xubuntu however will not be added due to sapce limitation ubuntu and DSL will have to do unless you can think of something to replace DSL with but ubuntu shall suffice as the primary install OS

    this is NOT a boot only disk after it is burned if you "EXPLORE" the disk their will be a folder called "Solaris Utility DVD 3.0" this folder has all sorts of installable programs ranging from games to network diagnostics and drivers etc.

    Defrag tools are included 3 atm (though they are installable) possibly more to come. as well as bootable defrag utilitys

    hmmmn maybe if you could get someway of burning more data than 4.3gb?

    maybe we should have a dual layer version joke thats overkill

    do we really need all those types of free DOS?
    okay ubuntu is good for me if your strapped for space.
