Best single 3.5" floppy rescue mini-distro?


Hi,

I am often called to rescuse systems with the CD drive down and no USB flash boot option in the BIOS.

What you would reccommend as the best rescue GNU/Linux (or BSD) mini-distro on one 3.5" floppy disk?

I use HAL91 so far, which is very good, but it is becoming dated.

Any newer/better stuff out there?

Thanks,

VS

I'm not sure how dated this is, but I've often used tomsrtbt.
