About grml - Linux Live-CD
You can use grml for example as a rescue system, for analyzing systems/networks or as a working environment. It is not necessary to install anything to a harddisk, you don't even need a harddisk to run it. Due to on-the-fly decompression grml includes about 2.1 GiB of software and documentation on the CD. As grml is an open source project you don't have to pay anything to use grml. grml provides more than 2300 software packages. Excluding library stuff still more than 1700 packages remain. We don't ship KDE and OpenOffice but more than 800 packages Knoppix does not provide.

grml provides several scripts und utils which make live easier. zsh is configured with the completion mechanism. grml-x is a wrapper for using the X window system. People from VC Graz for example can get a PPTP tunnel via calling the script grml-pptp-vcgraz (enter username and password - that's it!). grml-vpnc-tugraz let's you establish a connection via VPN at TU Graz.
