Salvare (from the Latin "to rescue") is a small Linux distribution designed for small, credit-card sized CDs which typically hold around 34MB. More Linux than tomsrtbt but less than Knoppix, it aims to provide a useful workstation as well as a rescue disk. In addition to providing a rescue environment similart to tomsrtbt, it adds OpenSSH, a graphical and text mode Web browser (Links), security tools such as chkrootkit, nmap, and tcpdump, the ability to apt-get install additional software from Debian into tmpfs, the ability to run entirely from RAM, and much more. It's also customizable using a simple source-code based package management system.

It supports a wide range of hardware (including SATA and DM/LVM2) and filesystems (including ext2/3, hfs/hfs+, and xfs) and can serve as a full backup/restore system for MS Windows systems which use FAT12/16/32 or NTFS.

The STUBS Toolchain and Utility Build Suite is a set of scripts which, together with a set of pre-written configuration files, builds one or more software packages in sequence. STUBS is designed to work in very minimal environments, including those without "make", and URLs are included so source and patches can be downloaded as necessary. Configuration files and scripts are provided which create boot media for Franki/Earlgrey Linux (one of several example busybox- and uClibc-based Linux environments) and the intention is that STUBS should be able to rebuild such an environment from within itself.
