Auditor CD

WindowsITPro has a good
article describing the Auditor Security Collection CD. A Knoppix
variant (which this is) is one of those tools that any Microsoft admin
should learn to use, especially because it's not MS. It allows
you to do and learn "new things" and gets you out of the purist mindset.
As an analogy: Craftsmen makes very good tools (the replacement policy
is a plus too) but sometimes the best tool for the job is a Starrett
Micrometer.

In any case, the article reviews the various tools
available on the CD (this collection is "aimed" at the security
auditor).
