While browsing around OiNK today, this popped up under the apple softwares listing:
Posted Image

(Yeah, I know its changed to gray, pink starts to slowly blind you of anything not colored pink after a few weeks :( )

From some of the info i checked out on Apple Life (the russian forum in the pic, available translated here: Link) It appears to be a heavily modified installation, with the Finder removed and replaced by Xfolders. there are also numerous disk and file utilities included, along with "The installation packages Mac OS X on the hard drives".

Looks and sounds interesting, as soon as Azureus finishes with it i'll try to boot it up and see how it works.

Phail. First of all, Kismus needs to include PS/2 drivers on the DVD so laptop users with touchpad and keyboard on the PS/2 bus won't be phailed. Also, I couldn't boot it from a SATA DVD drive, but I suspect that problem occurs with install DVDs as well...

How can I add other applications (DiskWarrior e.g.) on the disc image ? Either under MacOSX or Windows.
Thanks in advance.

I don't know that image but first open terminal and type

hdiutil attach -readwrite <drop the image here> and hit return.

If you are able to simply drop your apps to the application folder on the disk now, then
the russians made a readwrite image.

If not, you have to convert it first with the diskutility. Mount it, open
diskutility and convert it to a readwrite image. Then do the first step again.

Sorry don't works:
"hdiutil attach -readwrite <drop the image here> and hit return." returns me an error message (I am not at my computer to tell you exactly)
Convert with DU works partially -> so the result image is read-only too. Obviously, i chose read write method to convert. What is wrong or am I such a big dumbass?

hmm... works here.

I downloaded it and figured out, that the iso is already a readwrite image. So no need to convert it.

Maybe you typed it with the '<' and '>' ?

the exact syntax in the terminal in OS X would be

hdiutil attach -readwrite /path/to/your/image.iso

of course you have to take the exact location on your harddisk to the iso
instead of /path/to/your/image.iso. Easiest way is to drop the .iso in the terminal.

After that you can add any files by dropping them into the folders of the mounted image.
