I'm looking for a bootable rescue CD-ROM with some Linux-based OS on it
(preferrably Debian). It should include utilities like fdisk and mkfs,
parted, grub, bash (please, no ash!), vim, ssh and a reasonable ftp (what
about ncftp) client. lynx, X are nice, but not a requirement. It should be
capable of mounting common filesystems like ext2, xfs, vfat.
I've looked into Knoppix, which is a little overweighted (KDE3) and
somehow failed to get along with a chrooted lilo the last time I used it
(rendering the disc essentially useless for my purpose). Maybe a
customized Knoppix CD-ROM would do ...
