The last version | Released: 0.1.0.6b (?) | March 13, 2002

Biatchux (DMZS-Biatchux Bootable CD) – a bootable CD distribution of which the goal is to provide a freely available immediately deployable platform for performing forensic analysis, incident response, data recovery, host virus scanning and penetration/vulnerability assessment.

This is still in beta but has proven stable for my needs (developers), which prompted it’s creation. I have tried to ensure >2G file handling capability but have not yet tested with any files greater than 2G. I am trusting Dave Dittrich’s advice and his findings toward proper environment setup for >2G.

It should work on AMD, Cyrix and 486’s or greater with 64M memory or greater (as with all things, more seems to be better, or at least more comfy!), and IDE or SCSI boot cd (selected scsi controllers only). Biatchux has now tested successfully on systems with only 64M Ram.

The project developer are William Salusky and David Zendzian.
