Diagnostics package suggestions? live CD or remote?
I am currently trying to fully migrate to linux from windows, so am a bit of a newbie. So please forgive me if i have missed an obvious point anywhere.
I do a lot of PC repair and diagnostics, and someone suggested to me that there may be some linux packages or apps that can do remote diagnostics? eg. connect via data cable or ethernet, and remotely test the system.
I was wondering if anyone could confirm this, and maybe suggest a few to me if such apps/packages exist.
The other thing i have noticed a lot of, are live CDs. Would this be a better thing to use for diagnostics purposes?
If so, could anyone suggest a distro that would be good for diagnostics.
Please note that the majority of systems i repair are windows based.
Sorry if i am asking in the wrong place, and thanks in advance for your replies.
All comments are gratefully welcomed.
