A Program for Computer emergencies!

Recommended Posts

The program is called Ultimate Boot CD..


You need the Ultimate Boot CD if you want to:


* Run floppy-based diagnostic tools from CDROM drives. More and more PCs are shipped without floppy drives these days, and it is such a royal pain when you need to run diagnostic tools on them.


* Free yourself from the slow loading speed of the floppy drive. Even if you do have a floppy drive, it is still much much faster to run your diagnostic tools from the CDROM drive, rather than wait for the tool to load from the floppy drive.


* Consolidate as many diagnostic tools as possible into one bootable CD. Wouldn't you like to avoid digging into the dusty box to look for the right floppy disk, but simply run them all from a single CD? Then the Ultimate Boot CD is for you!


When you boot up from the CD, a text-based menu will be displayed, and you will be able to select the tool you want to run. The selected tool actually boots off a virtual floppy disk created in memory.



The list of tools is rather long, so just visit this site: http://ultimatebootcd.com/


The full version contains all the tools found in the basic version but also adds the INSERT environment, a Linux distribution based on Knoppix. INSERT contains many utilities for the Linux user, such as the ability to mount most filesystems (including NTFS(rw) via Captive), ssh and sshfs which allows you to mount a filesystem over ssh, Samba client and server, IDS and testing tools such as Nessus and Snort, Rdesktop to remote control Windows servers, VNC, Qtparted for re-partitioning, iptables, and Monkey webserver are just a few of the tools found on the UBCD version of INSERT. In addition, UBCD Insert also supports modules which can be found at SourceForge that contain several more tools.

Just to note for those that don't know, unless your dealing with Linux systems you only need to download the basic version, the only extra the full version has is Linux support, everything else is the same. ;)
