RIP Linux

RIP here does not meant for Rest In Peace, but rather Rescue Is Possible. Yes, it's another great Linux Distribution (based on Slackware) in form of CD or floppy for boot / rescue / backup / maintenance system.

It has support for a lot of filesystem types (Reiserfs, Reiser4, ext2/3, iso9660, UDF, XFS, JFS, UFS, HPFS, HFS, MINIX, MS DOS, NTFS, and VFAT) and contains a bunch of utilities for system recovery. It also has IDE/SCSI/SATA, PCMCIA, RAID, LVM2, and Ethernet/DSL/cable/PPP/PPPOE network support.

You can burn the ISO into a CD or USB Drive (instructions are provided on the official site) or install it via PXE.

If you want to install and boot Linux on a Windows XP/Vista system, it can be done too big grin

What's so special with this distribution? Well, this distribution includes lots of tool for recovery purposes, including resetting the password and so on. More detailed information about this distribution can be seen on the website or read the Documentation.
