Run Dell OpenManage with Knoppix LiveCD

Filed under
Linux

Sven Hergenhahn created a live CD based on Knoppix 3.4 that allows you to run Dell OpenManage directly from the CD.

There are two flavors:

1. One is a full featured Knoppix CD with KDE and almost all recovery tools (614 MB)

2. the other is a stripped down version that still offers numerous tools, but has been shrinked to 300 MB for slower connections.

Nothing needs to be installed on the harddisks and no drives get mounted writeble by default, so you can safely use this CD, it will not destroy anything.
