Here in will be the recipe needed to install a clean, effecient and viable build of Debian, NoCat and related apps to turn a NewCloneArmyBox into a powerfull node on the PTPnet

(These are rough notes taken by JeffWillard and DarrinEden from the actions of KeeganQuinn which will be hammered into a step by step recipe)

The Debian Install

  • at boot prompt: "bf24" (start 2.4 kernel vs. 2.2)
  • select Language and keyboard
  • hard disk (/dev/hda)
    • Create swap partition (128M)
    • Root partition --bootable (128Mb)
    • logic partition (.5 Gig)
    • 2nd logic (.5 Gig)
    • home (whatever is left over)
    • all FS type Linux exect swap which is linux swap

    • Init swap partition
    • init pri (ext3)
    • mount root filesystem
    • repeat above for var,usr,and home

  • kernel install
    • configure device drivers
    • (devices/net)
    • nic (de4x5)
  • configure network
  • make system bootable --mbr
  • reboot
  • set time
  • set root pwd
  • remove pcmcia packages? yes
  • atp configuration ---edit by hand
  • run taskel? --no
  • deselect? --no
  • update configuration file? yes
  • Configuring debconf
    • select Readline
    • select medium
    • don't touch keymap
    • system wide readible directories? yes
    • serial--autosave once
  • upgrade glibc? Y
  • update system? yes
  • mail config? 5
  • mandb? --yes
  • rebuild database? --yes
  • erase any additional .deb files? --yes
  • "apt-get update"
  • "apt-get install deborphan"
  • "deborphan"
  • "dbkp -P <all packages listed ---space in between>"

  • "deborphan -a"
  • "dpkg -P <all packages you don't want>"

  • "deborphan -a"
    • repeat several times to ensure all packages are removed that you don't want

NoCat Setup

Here's the raw capture of the stuff I did to the second box. There's a little fu that didn't get captured in a vi session, but forthe most part...

  • "clear"
  • "/sbin/ifconfig -a"BR

  • "sudo su -"

{{{We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System Administrator. It usually boils down to these two things:

  • #1) Respect the privacy of others. #2) Think before you type.


  • "exit"
  • "logout"
  • "sudo -s"
  • "clear"
  • "apt-get install snmpd dnsmasq"
