    Hi Maxime

    I have tried several vmware Linux combinations. Below is a list of my
    experience:

    Linux Suse 9: big troubles with NAT between vmware and host OS;
    Mandrake: couldn't get SVGA running;
    Redhat 8: smooth as it should be!

    so my favourite is definitely Redhat 8.0

    Christoph

    Hi List,

    I think a good portion of you guys use a VMWare-Linux setup when doing
    pen-test (for many reasons). The question i would like to ask is, which
    linux distribution works best for this specific purpose ? Obviously you
    dont need a distribution with many fency Xwin features and preferably
    good networking tools built-in.

    I am uncertain about which would work best in this particular scenario
    and i really cant think of anyone better then you guys to give me
    insight.

    Thanks,

    -Maxime
