Trying to boot to a Linux ISO?

Do you currently have a Linux CD or ISO that you wish you could boot from a USB stick instead of having to carry around a CD with you? You need to know about a piece of software called UNetbootin.  This software allows you to take a Linux iso and copy it and make your USB thumb drive bootable.
Being in the computer consulting industry I’ve used this in two real life examples that I will share with you.

  • The first one is called Back Track. This is security auditing software that I use to assess clients’ networks. It is an excellent piece of software for scanning networks.
  • The next piece of software is called Ophcrack. This software uses the Windows hash file to crack Windows XP and Windows Vista passwords.
