Hey there,

I've been using tomsrtbt for years to do e2fsck on questionable drives, 
but I may have hit the end of its usefulness. I used it today, and got 
the messge that the file system had new features not supported by the 
e2fsck on tomsrtbt. Judging from his website, I'd say the project has 
been abandoned. Anyone have a suggestion for a more up-to-date bootable 
rescue sort of distro? I prefer one that fits on a floppy, since some of 
my machines don't have cd readers on them, but for the short term with 
this particular machine, I could use one from a cd.
