Hi all. I am a technician at OnTheGo PC, a computer store and repair shop at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. I actually stumbled onto the UBCD project through a google search and decided to mod it to include our tools as well. After finishing the first version of the DVD, I decided to contribute to the community by publishing a Public Release of the DVD. This public release, of course, contains all FREE software. Right now it only contains Windows 2K and XP installations. The only problem is that I don't have hosting space available (I'm a poor college student). If you're willing to help out by providing space (at least 2 GBs), feel free to respond. I will be checking this forum frequently. Also, if anybody knows how to contact the UBCD administrators, I'd like to talk to them as well. Alright. Later all.

-TT

Huh Win 2K and XP are NOT freeware, you can't publish it oO ... if you have some true freewares to suggest as to be included in next release you are welcome to list them here, but I doubt anyone will help you to publish this as you describe it.

The Admins check this forum quite frequently too so don't worry, they won't miss your message.

I don't really see why it would not be legal. All I'm providing is the installation CDs all in one package, not the COA. If Microsoft provides tools to slipstream service packs it their CDs, then why wouldn't this be legal as well. Looking through the EULA now. Thanks for the feedback.

Basically the issue is this, you are not allowed to redistribute but certain apps from MS and even then it is very few. Distributing the install file for any MS OS is illegal whether or not it includes a key or a COA or anything. It is flat out not allowed by MS.

Yeah, agree with the others on this matter. Definitely not legal.
