Danny Robinson - 2013-01-14

I am a 63yo 'newby' (3-weeks) to Linux having grown up on NetWare
then Micro$oft. I have told my next-of-kin that my epitaph
on my tombstone must read: "Bill Gates sent me here!".
Let's hope the Penguin gets more accolades than M$!

Booting from Hiren's v15.2 BootCD and choosing:
"Linux based rescue environment (Parted Magic 2012-10-10)"
To manage partitions, backup and recovery.

root@PartedMagic:~# uname -a
Linux PartedMagic 3.5.6-pmagic #1 SMP
Mon Oct 8 17:36:20 CDT 2012
i686 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E6850 @ 3.00GHz GenuineIntel
GNU/Linux

The OS embedded in SquashFS, found under (the booted environment):
is Slackware 14.0
http://www.google.com.au/search?q=How+to+determine+Slackware+version
Additionally, two 3rd party programs you can use to automatically
get this information are Ohai and Facter.
The value of  is: Linux 3.2.29-smp which is the same version
as the Slackware 14.0 installation wizard.

This BootCD was primarily built to run PartedMagic 3.5.6
on a SquashFS(.sqfs) FileSystem.

The Master image is: PMAGIC_2012_10_10.SQFS (184.1 MB)
I want to expand/install that image onto an SSD and then re-run the Slackware
14 installation wizard to create a fully-blown 8GB Linux system from that
already established environment where a whole heap of features (i.e. LAN, etc)
work, that seem quite broken when compared to a system that has been created
from a Slackware 14 installation wizard by itself.

Should I continue to maintain this expanded OS on the SquashFS(.sqfs)
FileSystem or somehow convert it to EXT4 or even XFS?

Are there any files on the Slackware 14.0 installation wizard that should be
modified before starting the wizard over the top of this?
