    What, no torrents? For a 5.4GB file, that seems like a no brainer. :(

    I e-mailed the author about seeding some torrents, it does make sense. Will update if it happens.

    I have also added instructions on installing additional Distros like Backtrack 3, Puppy Linux, Trinity Rescue Kit and Clonezilla to the Hack From a Cave Forum @ forum.hackfromacave.com.

    Why is the torrent 5.36g and the download 1.4g?

  8. Darknet November 29, 2009 at 11:38 am #

    The HTTP download is also 5.4GB, I think the original link I used was incomplete – have updated with a new link.

    I don’t suppose anyone sells a dvd version of this. 3 unsucessful downloads with archive errors when expanding. Just a thought :-)
