LiveCD with configuration?



  • Just wondering out loud here…

    I had a remote location experience a failing hard drive on their pfSense configuration, and was able to get them to limp along until I have an opportunity to get back up there with a new system.  In the meantime, I was wondering if it would be possible to set up a live CD with their configuration already on the CD, so that all they would have to do is drop in a CD and boot from that to have a working setup, at least for a short term?

    I realize I can do a CD with a USB device, but I'd really like to have fewer items that they can lose on site, and fewer things that they will need to do to get things to work.

    Thanks!

  • the CD isn't easy to modify, not really a practical option. CD+config on USB flash would work. The memstick image is more practical to mount, could potentially embed the config into a memstick load and then have only a single USB flash drive.
