BINSTALL(8)                                           BINSTALL(8)

     NAME
          binstall - install a planb with a replica

     SYNOPSIS
          binstall repletter

     DESCRIPTION
          Binstall installs a planb on /dev/sdC0 partitioning the sys-
          tem, making the hard disk bootable and configurating two
          replicas, one for the user and one for the system.

          NOTE: ALL THE CONTENTS ON /dev/sdC0 will be lost.

          The user must boot with a floppy from the filesystem to
          replicate.  Then add a letter for himself on
          /lib/repl/Readme.  The plan9.ini and the kernel for the 9fat
          partition are extracted from this floppy.  The parameter
          repletter is a unique letter representing the system
          replica. It must be added by hand to /lib/repl/Readme.

          Add relevant facts for you (new) computer in /what/$sysname
          in the appropriate context file.

          This progra creates at $home/bin/rc/synccmd a script which
          can be run (maybe customized), to synchronize the two repli-
          cas generated.

     EXAMPLES
          The letter for the replica is z:
          binstall z
          /rc/bin/binstall
