Question What Live CD do you use for Data Recovery?

I'm looking for a good data recovery live cd to do the following

- windows/linux (ntfs, fat, ext3 reiserFS) data recovery
- windows/linux (ntfs, fat, ext3, reiserFS) Deleted data recovery
- Windows password recovery
- Partition management (create, delete, resize, image)

I have found Helix, which looks nice. However, it's tools are quite advanced and focused more on forensics.

What are you guys using for system recovery?

Most people I meet use the install CD from thier distro for thier rescue disk. 90% of the time I use my Gentoo install CD to rescue my system with. But I will also use Knoppix and Slax on occasion.
