Knoppix at first blush.

In the process of installing my new laptop harddrive, I had the opportunity to use the linux.conf.au knoppix CD to boot and restore my backup image.

This is the first time I’ve ever touched Knoppix, and it’s fairly impressive, it auto detects all my hardware (ethernet, sound, video, mouse) and sets up all the drivers so it just works. It’s not designed as a rescue disk, but it’s got everything a rescue disk needs.
