All,

 I like the list of live Linux Distros.. But what about installed
security distros?  Does anybody have any suggestions for those?

Thanks

Wayne

Hi all,
try to look at that:

est-forensics-recovery/

I tested some of them and Backtrack is really good.
Maybe one point from my side - Try Pentoo, I like it too... Regards,
Michal

Ahmad,

The distro you are talking about is excellent.  It is the merging of 
two great distributions called Whax and Auditer.  Another good focused

one is Wardriving for use with wireless networks; info can be found at

Hello everyone,

What do you think is the best pen-testing live linux distro, i've 
heard that there is one called BackTrack and it seems to be a 
killer...but i thought your opinions are more important

cheers
