This will be an unusual review, due to the fact that the distribution under review doesn’t have an X server, and you don’t really need to login on it to work… This review is about EnGarde Secure Server 3.0.16 developed by Guardian Digital company with the help of the community.
We start by downloading an ISO image from one of the mirrors. We get a LiveCD EnGarde, which can run as LiveCD or can be installed onto the disk. If we install we have to register for free to get an activation code.
When the system boots from the LiveCD we can use the LiveCD session to install EnGarde. The installer is very simple, curses based, and consists of a few stages, which allow us to set the partitions, network connection etc.
