* Chat: Open the chat for asking help directly in Rescatux channel.

* Share log on forum: Prepares a forum post alike text so that you can just copy and paste it in your favourite forum. Logs are nicely inserted into it with [CODE] symbols.
* Boot Info Script: Run Boot Info Script option to share your computer configuration (specially boot one).

    Rescatux has saved my bacon on several occasions. An outstanding and free gem. Thank you SourceForge for your support of Open Source software ;)

    A great software! some 3 years ago, when i tried to install linux - ubuntu in my win vista - laptop, i messed up and couldnt load windows anymore - i lost access to all drives except thro linux, if i remember right.. Horrible thing in the middle of a struggle to submit a thesis, - the service person didnt know how to fix it, he wanted to format it - but rescatux saved me.. thank you :) - i created this account today when i suddenly saw rescatux on featured downloads- had to say its good, right :)
