The LNX-BBC is a mini Linux-distribution, small enough to fit on a CD-ROM that has been cut, pressed, or molded to the size and shape of a business card.
LNX-BBCs can be used to rescue ailing machines, perform intrusion post-mortems, act as a temporary workstation, and perform many other tasks that we haven't yet imagined.
The LNX-BBC runs as a "live filesystem" CD. Nothing is installed, and the system returns to its previous OS once you pop the LNX-BBC out.
The LNX-BBC philosophy is "leave no trace". The LNX-BBC does not even mount your hard drives read-write.
To be a useful rescue system, it provides you with the tools to modify your hard drives. You must explicitly re-mount them read-write to take advantage of this.
We develop our own distribution specifically to fit in the space constraints of the tiny CD-ROMs. We compile everything from source code with -Os, and use an elaborate system of compression and pivot_rooting to make a 50MB CD-ROM hold all of the programs we include.
What's New in This Release:
large IDE disk support
more DHCP clients
bittorrent downloads of ISOs from the Web site
bittorrent clients on the BBC
new upstream versions of many software packages
