pxe-boot is a PXE boot configuration of a Red Hat kickstart environment and another PXE boot environment of a recovery console. The Red Hat kickstart is just the standard Red Hat install boot disk (ES3.0), but it does not come with the installation files, just the install environment. The recovery console is an edited Gentoo environment with raidtools, parted, partimage, lilo, grub, and a slew of other handy recovery tools.

glogin is a program that can be used to cause a terminal (usually a virtual console) to be logged in automatically, without having to type a userid and password. Stick it in place of getty in /etc/inittab to have terminals come up logged in and at a shell prompt at every boot. Same purpose as 'alogin', but you use it a little differently, and it does a little more of the usual login stuff. It is a simple Perl program, and can be easily customized.

ramlog acts as a system daemon that maintains log files in memory instead of hard disk while the system is running. On startup, it creates a ramdisk, copies files from /var/log into the ramdisk, and mounts the ramdisk as /var/log. All logs after that will be updated on the ramdisk. When shutting down or restarting the service, it saves log files back to hard disk. This service drastically reduces the frequency of hard disk usage, which can be useful when the system runs on battery or uses flash memory instead of a hard disk.

readahead-list allows users to load files into the page cache before they are needed, to accelerate program loading. It improves on the existing readahead by taking the name of a file with the items to load, instead of requiring the arguments being passed as parameters. Additionally, it contains a tool (filelist-order) to optimize the order of the file list in several possible ways.

runit is a cross-platform Unix init scheme with service supervision; a replacement for sysvinit and other init schemes. It runs on GNU/Linux, *BSD, Mac OS X, and Solaris, and can easily be adapted to other Unix operating systems. runit implements a simple three-stage concept. Stage 1 performs the system's one-time initialization tasks. Stage 2 starts the system's uptime services (via the runsvdir program). Stage 3 handles the tasks necessary to shutdown and halt or reboot.
