Early Macintosh Image LoadEr allows to boot linux-m68k from a floppy on a macintosh such as MacII or Quadra 610.

With it, you can create rescue disk, or remove the MacOS partition (needed by the legacy penguin booter) from your HD.

Create a floppy from rescue disk image

You can find floppy image from the package emile-rescue

Under linux, the command to dump image to floppy is:

# dd if=emile-rescue-x.y.bin of=/dev/fd0 bs=512 conv=sync

then, you can eject floppy with:

# eject /dev/fd0

If you are using MacOS, use MakeDebianFloppy AppleScript (you must use a floppy image with a size of exactly 1474560 bytes).

What's New in This Release:
use zlib-1.2.3
decode ELF format
can read files from CDROM
