13 Excellent list. The one thing I'd probably add is Samba and NFS
14 filesystem support. I'd dropkick a nun for a decent, drop-in, bootable
15 CD with those features. Backing up clients' data across a network when
16 their system is unbootable is a bear of a chore; and our co-op student
17 is sick of us stealing his machine to perform network backups. ;>
19 If the LiveCD already supports this, I'll eat my hat. (Do I own a hat?)
21 Ok, I'll buy a hat, then eat it. :>
