            I've lost count of the number of times RIP has allowed me to save a friend's Windows system!

            I love this project !
            Sorry to hear that's the last R.I.P release ...

            I use it with a small twist:

            boot only from network

            gpxe loads from url kernel + initramfs and one network module,

            httpfs mounts a ripx iso

            initramfs has only busybox,init,fuse, httpfs , libraries and links to all other files mounted by httpfs, so I have fast boot time and get the rest on demand.

            I saw Slax is getting this path so I must learn how to do those modules...:((

            Please keep alive this project !

            The listed mirror site

            http://www.gtlib.gatech.edu/pub/linux/system/recovery/ is broken or very very out of date.
