A useful tool that I am in the process of adding to "my" UBCD is "Unattended".It can be found at http://unattended.sourceforge.net
. It allows unattended installations of Windows XP and 2000 over a network. The Linux boot disk they boot out is large-ish at 22 MB. That, combined with it's likely limited utility for a lot of people may take it out of the running for official inclusion. However, I couldn't get by without it, so I thought I'd make a note of it here anyway. It's really a great tool. I used it to do a Windows XP deployment to ~220 computers this summer in about 36 hours, including installation of updates and applications. Great stuff!
