The Trinity Rescue Kit is a Linux distribution based on Mandrake 9.0. It is
designed to rescue/repair/prepare dead or damaged systems, be it Linux or
Windows. It now has networking capabilities like ssh and samba and supports
about every network card, disk controller and USB controller.
The Trinity Rescue Kit 1.0 is the successor of v 0.5, which is more than a
year old by now. This version has way improved since and is close to being
perfect of what it 's supposed to do.
Version 0.5 and previous were based on a RedHat 7.2 distribution, but for
version 1.0 I switched to Mandrake (except for some packages) because they
have more hardware support than any distribution and because I always
support the underdog. Plus it 's just a good distribution and European. Let
's hope they can survive.
Provided you know some Linux, TRK can really save the day for you in terms
of evacuating files, cure a machine of viruses, reset Windows NT/2K/XP
passwords, create a disk image over the network, saving lost partitions,
It uses various existing third party tools such as chntpw, partition image,
The latest version is 1.0 build 80

P.S. Trinity Rescue Kit has no affiliation with the Trinity OS documentation
project. It 's just a coincidence it happens to be also a Linux issue.
