        Sorry guy forgot about google and about the rules. It won't happen again.
        I understand why you have them and I respect the rules. But people make mistake.

            I personally am a big fan of Bart's PE Builder, you can create your own custom boot CD with apps of your choice (Ghost, Cain and Abel, Anti-Virus, etc.) It's akin to WinPE, a deployment tool designed by M$. It's a great recovery and maintenance tool for when your hard drive goes tits-up, or anything else of the sort. Don't tell anybody ;), but this can also be a great hacker tool as well, provided you have physical access to the target machine, or network conectivity to said target. All you need to do is boot to this disk, and you have full read/write access to NTFS drives (logged on as SYSTEM) as well as network access for any machine in the domain.

            It takes some building and lots of time, but the end result is worth it. The support forums are a wealth of information as well. Give it a shot, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

                  Woah there, who said anything about pirating?
                  This utility is for creating a rescue CD from YOUR Windows disk using core componants of the OS to make a bootable CD. As long as you have a valid copy of Windows XP to work from, it's completely legal. It's like making a backup of your disk, but you can customize it by adding third party apps as plug-ins. I suggest reading this post for the legality issues. Bear in mind this threads topic is about corporate use of Bart's PE Builder, but you'll get the same basic rights for home use. Like I said in a previous post, "...the support forums are a wealth of information..." and I suggest reading through them, as well as Bart's site located here.

                  As long as you own your copy of Windows, and you aren't trying to use this as your primary OS, you're OK to use it on your machine (it has to do with the whole 'running two copys of Windows on the same machine at the same time' thing). I'm not a lawyer or anything so check the postings on the CDforums; it's been discussed many times there.

                  Read up, and have fun!

                    No it is not. Just like AOL CDs, there is no limit. An XP CD is only $25. It is the license code that costs the bucks.

                      Too true. Or you could just go over to India and buy a copy for $3 on the street corner...
