    Is there a way to write the information to another device instead of the floppy0 because we don't have a floppy.

    Hello Jeremy,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    We regret to inform you that there is no way to write the output to any other media. The workaround is to issue the following command (after you boot with the "quiet" word removed):

    sysinfo

    After that please write down the output after this command, or use a digital camera to make shots of the output screens and send the captured information to support@acronis.com. You can use Shift+PgUp and Shift+PgDn keys in order to scroll the screen manually.

    Thank you.

    I would be interested in hearing from someone with a solid knowledge of Linux and networking. In theory, it should be possible to use some kind of Samba-client software to store the diagnostics output on another PC.

    E.g. some combination of commands like these:

    Code:
    $ smbclient -L servername -W domainname -U username
    
    $ smbclient -L servername -W domainname -U username%password
    
    $ mkdir /tmp/remoteshare
    
    $ smbmount //servername/sharename /tmp/remoteshare -o username=username
    
    $ mount -t smb //servername/sharename /tmp/remoteshare
    $ mount -t smbfs -o username=xxxxx //servername/sharename /tmp/remoteshare
    $ mount -t smbfs -o username=xxxxx,password=xxxx //servername/sharename /tmp/remoteshare
