All it would take is a filter to omit specific files. There are various
ways to do that. I don't see why it's easier to go back and delete
files. It's just as much work to avoid copying specific files as it is
to copy-all and then delete them.

People booting the CD are probably not running PostgreSQL databases from
the CD. I'm not clear why PostgreSQL belongs on a sysadmin CD...but you
must have reasons.

It's a CRT monitor; no auto-adjust. I leave the monitor settings
exactly as when I use my computer for Windows. I use CD defaults for
GRML boot. The grml-CD fonts and video defaults look good. The USB
hard drive boot has the ugliness.

I tried snapping digital photos, but they are bad. The screen has some
curvature and the lighting is rotten. I can't freeze the boot process
either. Sorrry, I tried! The video card is nVidia GeForce 3.

I understand the need for specialized floppies, which is why the
installer should make them.
Thank you for your detailed responses. I appreciate your hard work very
much. Go GRML!
