Hello Ryan and everyone.  Great little distro.  LIke you I remastered KNOPPIX to try and fit my needs bit it still was too bloated.  I then found yours on distrowatch.  Very nice.  However its still to big for my needs. I'm wanting something very specific. I want to strip it to its minimum so I can run scrub against devices.  I know this sounds alot like DBAN but DBAN doesnt currently support some of the controllers I use.  SCRUB however works on all the arches I have here such as Solaris/Power5 so thats why it was chosen over DBAN.  I'm working on something for the x86 desktop/server population.  I noticed your lovely scripts but I'm missing something totally obvious.  At what point would I run the scripts?  I've played with them a little but I am missing something obvious.
 
FINNIX saw every controller I've thrown it at so far.  Some suggestions/requests I have is to put scrub (http://www.llnl.gov/linux/scrub/scrub.html_) on it.  I saw wipe was there already.  Whiel this would maek the kenel/mods bigger, include support for every IDE/SCSI/whatever drive device...
