    systemrescuecd is a disk that has gparted, xfce terminal, mrxvt terminal, geany editor GVim editor, firefox, partimage, testdisk, Lshw, midnight commander, Epdfview PDF viewer, Dillo web browser, and hexadecimal editor, all on one disk.
    i like the disk alot, but the only problem is that i don't know how to properly shut it down. there is no "shut down" button, but there is a sort of "terminal". However, i have tried numerous commands and have been unsuccessful in shutting systemrescuecd off. does anyone have the secret to shutting this disk off?

    I don't think I understand what you mean,it's a live cd which runs in RAM you just power off the pc to shut it down.o_O

    andyman35,
    you must mean "hard kill" by pushing in the power button until the computer shuts down.

    you might have to run shutdown as root, so type in su, then enter the password, it could be root if you don't know it, then type that shutdown command -
    shutdown -h now
