SystemRescueCd 1.5.6

(Other stories by Michael Reed)

"SystemRescueCD is a free, Linux-based CDROM image for system recovery that boots into a minimal graphical interface and provides a host of useful tools culled from many sources.

"In addition to the suite of dedicated recovery and repair utilities, the disk can get you to a basic desktop that includes network connectivity and a web browser. This is an important feature as, let's face it, most recovery work requires the odd visit to a search engine.

"Although it can boot to a fairly useful desktop, it's not a lightweight general purpose distribution like Puppy Linux. In the same way, it's not a disk to hand to someone who doesn't know much about computers. You need a bit of expertise to use it, and it's a disk that, if misused, could easily wipe or corrupt a system."
