[lug] Windoze-based linux emergency disk

Actually, PuTTY is SSH2 compatible. I don't think tomsrtbt has SSH on it.
I'm pretty sure it doesn't have FTP.

A good solution for a full fledged CD Bootable Linux distro is Slackware. It
has pretty much everything you would expect.

Wouldn't it be easier to carry around something like tomsrbt on a
business card CD in your wallet for FULL Linux support and SSH2?
(PuTTY's only SSH1 compatible.)

to put together a solution for those times when I'm not around a machine

elses computer.

to write to the hard drive? If I execute PuTTY will it leave a foot print on
the machine? I'll be borrowing a mcahine to burn the CD so I kinda need to
cover all the bases before hand.
