Thanks again ..
I use it for rescue in emergencies, but it is a full Linux system. You get the complete Gnu toolkit, including all those Unix commands. It's based on Gentoo Linux, so you could add anything you needed in the way of diagnostic tools, for example.

Thanks so much for the reply ... and I have one more (last ) question.
I downloaded .iso , followed documentation, created USB drive on my Linux system and did not have a problem to start it.
But my goal is to use it on Windows PC's. Hence I'm using YUMI multiboot utility for it.
I tried to add this ISO to YUMI, I used unlisted ISO ( not sure I had to use grub or syslinux or etc )
When I booted it and selected the first (default) option it failed stating that some files are missing.
My question: In case I want to put it on YUMI ... which ISO should I select and which options to use?
Thanks in advance

System Rescue CD is supported on YUMI, under other Distros
