"The description from SystemRescueCd's website explains:
"SystemRescueCd is a Linux system on a bootable CD-ROM for
repairing your system and your data after a crash. It also aims to
provide an easy way to carry out admin tasks on your computer, such
as creating and editing the partitions of the hard disk. It
contains a lot of system utilities (parted, partimage, fstools...)
and basic ones (editors, midnight commander, network tools). It
aims to be very easy to use: just boot from the cdrom, and you can
do everything. The kernel of the system supports most important
file systems (ext2/ext3, reiserfs, reiser4, xfs, jfs, vfat, ntfs,
iso9660), and network ones (samba and nfs).
"The distro also includes Xorg with Window-Maker and gparted, a
graphical partitioning utility..."
