Hello

I'd like to build an ISO that Windows end-users can use to salvage their data from a virus-infected PC, and try to remove viruses using Avira.

Since a text-based menu is too complicated for them, I'd like UBCD to boot directly in X, and just display a couple of icons, such as a X-version of Midnight Commander and another to start Avira.

Can UBCD be easily customized to do this, or is it meant to start from a text-mode menu, and would require a fair share of customizing by an expert? If the latter, what alternative would you recommend?

Thank you.

UBCD is just a collection of different utilities. Some of them are DOS programs, others are linux kernels (with eventually an intird), ...

The UBCD menu system uses Syslinux. The config files are plain text files, that can be easily edited to add extra programs (that are bootable from Syslinux: floppy/hard disk/(some) iso images, Linux kernels + initrds, boot sectors, ...

Avira Rescue CD is included in UBCD (as GUI).
Parted Magic (linux distro) shows a GUI by default too.
