The live-cd solution will work perfectly _assuming_ the binary makes no
effort to ensure it is running on a real installation. So my primary
concern is gaining access to the network again without any changes to my
system

As a secondary concern, I would like to figure out what the binary is
doing every step of the way and publishing the results for others to be
aware of.

Thanks everyone for your great responses. I definitely have some
research to do in this new and very intriguing area of system management
and security.

Sincerely,
Doug
