I will second that. It's a collection of open source/free downloaded stuff. Also if you're not opposed to using illegal software there's Hiren's Boot CD.. I've not used it but i would guess the software could have copyright issues. Hiren's BootCD 10.0 - www.hiren.info

BartPE can do this kind of stuff, and is open so you can add in your own apps. winXP based.

+1 for Hiren's Boot CD. Though as mentioned, you need to obtain it from torrents since it uses pre-registered software, thus being illegal.

Hiren's and Ultimate, I use them both.

For virus scans though I prefer Kaspersky Rescue Disk or BitDefender Rescue CD.
