Linux bootable tech CD


Hi gang. Im trying to make a nice techCD for my fellow techs here at work. Im trying to put things like adaware, spybot, hijack this, etc on the CD, however i would also like to make it linux bootable with knopix or some other live CD distro.


My question is, can any of you think of a way to make a cd carrying windows exe's also be a bootable linux CD?


Thnx a bunch from me and about 14 other people.

Sure - it's called The Open CD

Alternatively, just grab a copy of DamnSmallLinux (50MB), and then you can add ~650MB of Windows executables in the remaining space. . .

Can you make damn small linux bootable off the CD while still allowing the windows files to be stored on it ?

Yes, just add a directory and put all the windows files in it.
