    Hi

    My favorite Live CD's/DVD's are:

    Knoppix, which I use to backup and restore partitions or to surf on empty computers;

    Avira Rescue CD when friends of mine's computers are virus-infected and need an AV scan from outside the system.

    Which Live CD's [or Live DVD's] are your favorite, and to what use?

    Thanks

    Ultimate Boot CD for Windows (UBC4Win) It's Windows XP (which I'm used to) and it covers all the basics.

    My vote is LiveXP for a more real windows feel. BartPE is a very close second though. Others are fine too, but these two give me the greatest feeling of my xp OS, and familiar tools as well if they are portable or have plugins made.
