Trinity Rescue Kit

Trinity Rescue Kit is a small CD-ROM/USB disk/PXE-based Linux distribution that targets repairing dead systems, or at least rescuing important data. It has full-blown network capabilities, including an ssh server and a Samba server. It has many custom-built scripts, full NTFS read-write capabilities through ntfs-3g and captive, and four virus scanners.

        Captive remastering doesnt work
        Based on the instructions. The current version of nero (as per link) closes the session on every cd burner i've tried it on (4). No dice adding the 2 ntfs files.

        Can we also have instructions on re-mastering/burning from a linux box?

        mkisofs -o some.iso so on and so forth...


        Or have the option of captive looking on an additional floppy for the 2 files.
