MEMORANDUM TO: Networking Customers and Students FROM: Networking Series Editorial Staff SUBJECT: Work-around solution for the Linux bootable CD of Hands-On Ethical Hacking and Network Defense ISBN: 0619217081 DATE: 11/2/05 This book comes with a bootable CD that allows students to use a *NIX-based operating system on a classroom or home computer running a Windows OS. The CD also includes testing documentation, The Open-Source Security Testing Methodology Manual, from the Institute for Security and Open Methodologies. Unfortunately, there was a problem in the duplication of this CD for printing, and the CD is not booting up the Linux testing environment as it should. We apologize for this error, and we are working to fix the problem. In the meantime, we have come up with a work-around that allows you to boot up this part of the CD using a floppy disk and a file called rawwritewin-0.7.zip. This is posted separately. Please use the instructions below to boot up your CD in this manner.
