Question Looking for specific distro... please help


I am wondering is there a distro that is used as quick emergence disk:

Boot disk that automacitally mount all partitions and make them accessible from local network via SSH or samba etc...

I need this in order to be able to perform quick backups when systems are down.

Tool should be able to read/write NTFS partitions as well.

THANK YOU!

Knoppix is your best bet. If you add the ntfs-3g ability to it then you should have the NTFS partitions taken care of too. Check it out www.knoppix.de

hi

I do use Knoppix but it takes a while to load on older systems.

Something light like DSL Linux without GUI would be perfect.

Can anybody point me where can I get help in order to build something like that?

- no GUI
- must be light for resources
- networking
- SSH
- Samba
- NTFS drivers
- Linux based
- script that automatically execute at startup in order to mount and share all partitions over the network.

So the link to the list of multiple Live CD's wasn't sufficient ? 36 of them being geared to rescue....
