"Salvare (from the Latin "to rescue") is a small Linux distribution designed for small, credit-card sized CDs which typically hold around 34MB. More Linux than tomsrtbt but less than Knoppix, it aims to provide a useful workstation as well as a rescue disk.
Salvare can be booted via:
* Bootable CD-ROM (BIOS permitting)
* Simple boot floppy [NB: in progress]
* Network boot using a Salvare boot floppy [NB: in progress]
* Network boot using PXE and another machine running Salvare [NB: planned]
* Everything in tomsrtbt, plus...
* OpenSSH (clients & server)
* Security tools such as: chkrootkit, nmap and tcpdump
* apt-get: install additional software from Debian into tmpfs
* bash (rather than ash or other lightweight shells in similar projects)
* (Almost) complete distribution of Perl
* Sound support for playing of SoundTracker modules, MP3s etc is possible
* Ability to run entirely from RAM, unlike other "live CDs"
* ...and more to come."
