Presumably that would be pretty safe. Once you get off line scan /home for 1) directory names starting with a . 2) filenames containing control characters and the like 3) executables whose purpose you don't know Do this with executables from a floppy, preferably by booting from an external fs like floppy or CD-ROM.
