INSERT (the Inside Security Rescue Toolkit) aims to be a multi-functional, multi-purpose disaster recovery and network analysis system. It boots from a credit card-sized CD-ROM and is basically a stripped-down version of Knoppix. It features good hardware detection, fluxbox, emelfm, links-hacked, ssh, tcpdump, nmap, chntpwd, and much more. It provides full read-write support for NTFS partitions (using ntfs-3g), and the ClamAV virus scanner (including a fairly recent signature database and a GUI). It provides partition handling with gParted and also has a network boot facility.
Ii should think, if you want to use a linux system to operate on your harddisk, you should first make yourself familiar with using such a system (i.e. know how to mount harddisk partitions etc.). Also you should start reading the (small bit of) documentation that comes with INSERT. You can see it in the browser after system startup.
INSERT is designed for use by experienced (linux) users.
INSERT tries to provide the tools - you need to provide the knowledge.
Re: LCD Problem
Maybe try giving it an 'insert vga=normal' on the boot prompt.
