After troublesome install, EnGarde proves it's secure

Those other partitions are on the same drive, so what about MBR rootkit? This installation technique outside of OS is used by many malware authors now. What about any type of malware that is on this "other" partition? It could have the ease of being local in it's penetration of EnGarde somehow by being on neighboring partition. Sure you can do this somehow, but why, you want more chance of being bulletproof, I do anyway if I go to the trouble already of using distro such as this one. I agree with not wanting to connect to the internet right after installation. Core Impact security product does this too, it is bothersome to say the least. I definitely wouldn't use this anyway with forced registration, that doesn't even feel GPL too me, it sounds like something Bill G would do.
