I dont mind even windows XP (since maybe it uses less space).

How much of space do I need on the usb flash drive?

Also note... the computers have dvd drives... I dont mind burning a boot CD but it has to be Windows.
I have run boot CD's in the past for linux and they are slow because of the cd read speed...thats why I prefer usb i guess.
Download Hirens.. will do everything you need.
