[rear-users] ReaR and the Raspberry PI

Hi Ralph,

as the Pi won't boot from USB storage or USB CD/DVD drives or from network
I don't think that this is really feasable. Why not simply connect a USB
SD-card reader, insert an SD-card and clone (rsync, dd ...) the builtin
SD-card? That way you will get a bootable medium that just works without
restoring it.

Regards,
Schlomo
