Using And Therefore Setting Up Mondo And Mindi Under Linux (version 3.2.2-r3752)
This document generally describes how to use mondo in conjunction with mindi tools to secure disaster recovery of your systems. It includes information about installation, backup and recovery settings, hardware and software requirements, and reasons for some frequently asked questions.
Dreams lend themselves to a general study of functions and their proper use.
Mondo Rescue is a disaster recovery solution that allows you to
