Anyone have used the windows live CD Mini PE² , I found it great it contains a lot of useful applications for windows: Ghost,winrar and password viewers.... and more and all for free, i guess it's illegal.
I've heard good things about that (I also think Jack had posted in the past about a similar project, I'll check it).
Personally I haven't tried it, however if it contains a good collection of drivers it would be very useful for everyone (unfortunately there are still some good tools that only run on Windows..).
An other live cd that is very useful, is Hiren's Boot CD (just google it for more details)!
Though it's free distribution may be illegal, I don't think it would be illegal to use for someone that has paid for Windows (or in the case of Hiren's boot cd the individual applications that it contains).
