Re: MD5 sums of individual files?


	Did someone tried to put kernel and some startup staff on CD, and next set BIOS to 
boot from CD-ROM ? This should prevent intruder from changing kernel/bootscripts and i.e. 
checksum database. To prevent changes in CMOS, it is possible to put system disk with 
SCSI ID 2, or as slave on IDE. Most BIOSes dosen't allow boot from such devices, so even 
if intruder will change CMOS, computer will not start from faked kernel.
