This is a very brief answer. I hope others will help you with the details as I have no time presently. Transfer the Owl packages (the RPMS directory) and native source tree (native.tar.gz) to a temporary partition on the hard disk (make it /usr/src/world or you'd need to edit installworld.conf to reflect a different location). Extract the native tree, you get a Makefile. Create the partitions and filesystems you intend to install to and mount them under /owl (or elsewhere, but you'd need to edit installworld.conf). "make installworld && make setup". Then upload the kernel sources, build a kernel (preferably chrooted into the new system such that the new system's development tools are used), and install it into the new system. "chroot /owl lilo". You're done. Please read Owl/doc/INSTALL and Owl/doc/BUILD before you do this. -- Alexander Peslyak <solar@...nwall.com> GPG key ID: B35D3598 fp: 6429 0D7E F130 C13E C929 6447 73C3 A290 B35D 3598 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments
