  Hi Hank,

I'm looking to create my own pentesting distro.. I really like BackTrack and Auditor but would like to fill in the gaps adding some tools for VoIP and App Testing..

I have played with about every distro so far-
LInux Fire
WAR Linux
Slax - Kill Bill
Slax - Frodo

So far I'm would really like to stick with debian based distros for my distro.

Would it be best to start with something like Kanotix and remaster it?? Or just start from scrath with debain and compile cloop and unionFS?

  I made a similar decision about 8 months ago, but decided against a
  debian based system. Simply because I can handle gentoo better when it
  comes to compile own stuff.
  I started from scratch. The pro is that you definitely know what's on
  the system whatever distro you choose. The con is the amount of time
  it takes to get the thing up and running the way you want it to.


                                                        Chris Kronberg.
