For those who require utility disks I came across a fantastic utility called XBOOT - It allows you to put multiple .ISO's on a CD or DVD and choose which one to boot from.

I've created my own multi-utility DVD with various other bootable utilities on there, works a treat, I think it can also create a bootable usb stick as well.

That's brilliant!

Now I need some recommendations for things to put on it!

Bollocks. And now I'm downloading Helix v2 Forensics CD (although, at 6Mb/sec it shouldn't take too long )

So far I've got...

AVG Rescue CD
F-Secure Rescue CD
Kaspersky Rescue CD (can't have too many!)
NimbleX
Slax
PING (disk cloning)
System Rescue CD
Hirens Boot CD 13

I would go for things like gparted, but system rescue cd, nimblex, slax, and ping all include partition editors

Hawk PE is worth a try if you combine it with a decent AV rescue disk. I've not tried using this xboot thing to add a nod32 rescue disk yet, still waiting for it to get to 9PM because there's a 1.3GB install I need before I can create it, and I've had angry letters recently about my downloading. The only problem with it is it doesn't seem to have been updated in almost a year, but I'd still say it's useful. The latest and possibly last version seems to be Hawk PE 43, and it has all this on it:-

A2Hijack
AusLogic Defrag
Broadcom 44xx-NIC Drivers
