Salvare (from the Latin "to rescue") is a small Linux distribution designed for small, credit-card sized CDs which typically hold around 34MB.
More Linux than tomsrtbt but less than Knoppix, it aims to provide a useful workstation as well as a rescue disk.
Here are some key features of "Salvare":
Salvare can be booted via:
Bootable CD-ROM (BIOS permitting)
Simple boot floppy [NB: in progress]
Network boot using a Salvare boot floppy [NB: in progress]
Network boot using PXE and another machine running Salvare [NB: planned]
Everything in tomsrtbt, plus...
OpenSSH (clients & server)
Security tools such as: chkrootkit, nmap and tcpdump
apt-get: install additional software from Debian into tmpfs
bash (rather than ash or other lightweight shells in similar projects)
(Almost) complete distribution of Perl
Sound support for playing of SoundTracker modules, MP3s etc is possible
Ability to run entirely from RAM, unlike other "live CDs"
...and more to come.
