autofs is a kernel-based automounter for Linux. It performs a job similar to amd but relies on a small stub of kernel code instead of pretending to be an NFS server. The result is simpler code, better reliability, and much faster operation in the common case (everything already mounted). Autofs 4 adds support for automounting trees of exported filesystems via /net.
NASM is an 80x86 assembler designed for portability and modularity. It supports a range of object file formats including Linux a.out and ELF, COFF, Microsoft 16-bit OBJ, Win32/64, and Apple Mach-O. It will also output plain binary files. Its syntax is designed to be simple and easy to understand, similar to Intel's but less complex. It supports all currently known opcodes, and has advanced macro capability. It includes a disassembler as well.
SuperRescue is a single very large bootable system-on-a-disk. It's based on the observation that the vast majority of systems allow you to do so much more than the minimal system. Therefore, it isn't for everything, but for most desktop systems, it provides a much nicer rescue environment than your average rescue floppy. It requires an i386 PC with 24 MB of RAM and a bootable CD-ROM. PCMCIA support is implemented but somewhat limited. It is based on RedHat 7. (Version 1 is based on RedHat 6.)
Syslinux is a collection of boot loaders for Linux and other operating systems which operates on Linux ext2/ext3 filesystems, MS-DOS FAT filesystems, network servers using PXE firmware, or from CD-ROMs. Syslinux has an advanced extension API and contains two optional menu systems. It also includes MEMDISK, a tool for booting legacy operating systems from non-traditional media like PXE or CD-ROM.
The zisofs filesystem is an extension to the ISO9660 filesystem that allows files, on a file-by-file basis, to be stored compressed and decompressed in real time. The zisofs filesystem is supported by recent versions of Linux (2.4.14 or later). Legacy systems can still read uncompressed files. zisofs-tools contains the tools necessary to create such a compressed ISO9660 filesystem and to read compressed files on a legacy system.
LPSM is a C library with a simple interface that manages a segment of memory backed by a persistent file. It differs from ordinary mmap() in two ways: it can optionally offer heap management (malloc/free/realloc) within the arena, and more importantly, a transaction log is used to ensure the consistency of the persistent representation. The application notifies LPSM whenever the arena is in a consistent state, suitable for checkpointing. If the application or system crashes, the arena will always be recovered to a consistent checkpoint.
WrapLinux is a utility to wrap a Linux kernel, together with a kernel command line and one or more initrd/initramfs files into a single file in ELF or NBI format. This is required by certain boot protocols, such as Etherboot/Netboot, and may otherwise be desired for consistency reasons. It can be considered a replacement for the mknbi and mkelf utilities.
dosbox-ipxrelay is a very simple, super-low-overhead dedicated server to support the DOSBOX version of IPX-over-UDP for old games. In particular, when left completely idle, it should consume no CPU time whatsoever. It should also have substantially better latency than the DOSBOX built-in server. It was designed and tested on Linux, and it should compile on any modern POSIX-compliant system.

Doesn't really work... mkzftree is run before mkisofs, not after...
