Go with what you know.

That said, I think remastering a modular distro has alot of good points.
Especially, when you want to shake it up every month or so down the road.

Subject: Live Linux Distro


Hey Guys,

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-
Knoppix
Kanotix
Whax
LInux Fire
WAR Linux
Slax - Kill Bill
Slax - Frodo
Ubuntu
Linspire

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?

The only thing is that I see that Slax uses modules and has an easy to use
remastering system.

I'm looking for Pros/ Cons of starting from scratch vs. just modifying
another distro.

I have used linux for a couple years and can get around pretty well but no
expert.

Cheers

Hank
