RawWrite for Windows is a replacement for the DOS-based rawrite, or rawwrite program (the DOS version does not work well under Win95, and does not work at all from NT). This version is designed to work under NT/2K/XP, and 95/98/ME. It has a simple GUI, which makes it easier for first time users to create their Linux boot disks.
fsdb speeds the creation of slocate's database files by keeping its own database and updating only those parts that need to be updated. It connects to a daemon to receive the updated inodes. In turn, the daemon interfaces with a kernel module which hooks into Linux's dnotify mechanism.
