    Hello mantra,

    In case you are unaware, the Full version of the bootable rescue media is based on Linux whilst the Safe version uses a combination of DOS and your motherboard's BIOS routines to communicate with the hardware. Normally, one uses the Full version and would only attempt to use the Safe variant if the Linux device drivers in the Full version are incompatible with your particular hardware. Even then, one must bear in mind that many motherboard BIOS/DOS combinations do not natively support devices such as USB, PC Card, SCSI, etc.

    Regards

    Well, actually, the "best" deal is that which works most effectively for you on your specific system. :D ;)

    Safe is not really the best descriptor for the version. It just means that full hardware support is not available which is similar to the meaning of Safe in Safe-mode for Windows.
