Hi,

I found Knoppix-std to be a very good distro.  You even do not need to run it under VMware, as this is a CD distro, 
running only from CD..

Have a look at www.knoppix-std.org.

Regards,

Max

Hi List,

I think a good portion of you guys use a VMWare-Linux setup when doing
pen-test (for many reasons). The question i would like to ask is, which
linux distribution works best for this specific purpose ? Obviously you
dont need a distribution with many fency Xwin features and preferably
good networking tools built-in.

I am uncertain about which would work best in this particular scenario
and i really cant think of anyone better then you guys to give me
insight.

Thanks,

-Maxime
