Helix Data Forensics/System Repair iso

Helix is a very hard to find bootable Knoppix based iso, which is useful for Data Forensics. Some of the uses for this CD are:

Finding multiple data streams in NTFS file systems.
Searching an entire disk partition for a string of text.
viewing all the text on a disk partition
viewing the raw hex of a disk partition
constructing a time line, based on creation date and last access date for all files
running FSCK on your root file system
using the DoD spec version of the DD command, dcfldd, which has a progress output
calculating an md5sum for a disk partition
copying a disk partition or entire disk to another disk, or file.
analyzing the bit stream copies of disks, which are in file format
analyzing the behavior of running programs
breaking into a windows system for forensic purposes
reading and analyzing outlook email for forensic purposes
reading and analyzing the contents of windows index.dat files, and cookies, temporary Internet files, and history of Internet explorer
opening disk partitions for read/write(you can edit fstab)
will autorun on a booted windows system
contains autopsy and sleuthkit
editable /etc directory
boots into root
auto configures every disk partition it finds in fstab
has web browser
will boot into KDE or gnome on certain systems
uses a decent screen resolution

This bootable CD is a basic debian based Knoppix knockoff, which is customized for system repair and data forensics. I carry it wherever I go. Frame buffer mode work on lcd monitors.

The features on this disk are endless, and there is full list of man pages on the CD.
