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The listed mirror site is broken or very very out of date.

Re: Great set of tools
What's more, it has all the necessary documentation onboard. There is a possibility to add Slackware packages. The developer's site seems more up-to-date, RIP 11.6 is already available. RIP has a one-floppy version, and one which includes a FreeBSD and a Linux rescue system together in a single ISO. The pendrive install script is self-explanatory and it can be run both from DOS and Linux. Thank you!

Re: Great set of tools
It should also be noted that scripts are included to make a the CD image bootable from an USB key, I've found this to be indispensable.
