The Epoch Init System is an init system for Linux designed with ease of configuration and non-intrusiveness in mind. It has no external dependencies besides libc and pthreads on a Linux 2.6+ system, though a working /bin/sh is suggested. It's suitable for large and small Linux distributions, but was designed with a focus on smaller Linux systems. It's features include a log system capable of recording boot events before the filesystem is made writable, ASCII runlevels, a convenient, single configuration file setup, automatic hostname setting at boot, automatic virtual filesystem mounting (think /proc), PID file support, stuck job killing during bootup and shutdown, integrated color greeting banner support, and automatic service restart support, to keep vital services running at all times.
Linux makes a great platform for deploying diskless workstations that boot from a network server. The LTSP is an open source project to create the administration tools that will make setting up a diskless Linux workstation easier.

Timo's rescue CD set provides an easy way to generate bootable CDROMs with a ready-to-use rescue system on them. The system is designed to be fully customizable and easy to build. The rescue system includes reiserfs, parted, partimage, nmap, w3m, bash, sshd, telnetd, ftpd, and nfsd. It is based on Debian's "Sarge" release. LILO, syslinux, isolinux, and GRUB are supported. The project is evolving more and more into a "Debian on CD" project, which means that its use is not limited to a rescue CD; it is also possible to install a whole Debian system on CD.

Autopoweroff is a script that shuts down a
computer at a specific time, but only if some
conditions are met. It works well on home
routers/firewalls where the machine can be
switched off every night and powered back up in
the morning. It can be configured to only shut
down the server after any computers which depend
on the server for Internet access have been shut
BootRoot creates a two-disk Linux system. The lilo method creates a boot disk with lilo, a kernel and an initrd image; the root disk can contain either a gzip- or bzip2-compressed filesystem.

BootUtils is a collection of utilities to
facilitate booting of Linux 2.6-based systems. The
process of finding the root volume either by label
or explicit label= on the kernel command line,
mounting it, and 'switchroot'ing is automated.
NetStation is a Linux distribution for diskless thin clients terminals using standard x86 hardware. It can boot from network, floppy, or flash-disk and connect to an application server using VNC, RDP, XDM, SSH, telnet, Citrix ICA, or Tarantella.
The netboot project allows booting a diskless PC over a TCP/IP based network using standard protocols like BOOTP, DHCP, and TFTP. It is able to boot Linux, FreeBSD, MS-DOS/Windows, and more.

Ficl (Forth inspired command language) is an ANS Forth interpreter written in C. Unlike traditional Forths, this interpreter is designed to be embedded into other systems as a command/macro/development prototype language. Ficl provides object extensions that can be used to wrap methods and structures of the host system without altering them.

Debian From Scratch is really two related components in one. First, it's a live bootable CD image that is designed to provide a full-featured kernel and rescue environment. It includes filesystem tools, editors, C compilers, Python, Perl, and everything you need to manually install Debian on a new machine. On ix86 machines, Grub is used to boot directly from the CD. There is also a program that is used to create the DFS CD images. It is highly configurable and can be used to create other custom bootable CD or DVD images. You can include whatever kernel or packages you want.
Injector Linux is a single-floppy Linux system, which
supports many filesystems -- currently
approximately 25. Because of its wide range of
supported filesystems, it is very useful for disk

The DOCSIS config file encoder converts a human-readable text configuration file into a binary configuration file compatible with DOCSIS cable modems or PacketCable Multimedia Terminal Adapters (MTAs).
ethwireck can detect if the physical layer of the
Ethernet is up. Laptops which use dynamic IP
address assignment via DHCP have the problem that
the boot process is much longer when no wire is
connected to the Ethernet card. This is because
the startup scripts have to wait for the DHCP
request to time out. ethwireck can be used in the
init script for your network card to determine
whether or not an interface should be brought up.
In other words, a timeout is avoided.
