As I remember, tripwire signs database files. So if you
trust in crypt/digest algorithms it uses, you can place
database files on HDD.
In that case you will need to keep only minimal OS,
tripwire binary, config, policy and key on bootable CD
(maybe even on floppy!). Database updates on HDD will be
much more convenient.
