    Yes. There is a Windows XP live CD you can create. See http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/ for details.
    I use it to recover Windows systems and to create images. Works great!

    Pebuilder is only a tool. There are no limits. Actually the only limit is oneself.
    Every person has his own self-made version of xp live cd. My own xp live-cd is much like knoppix, including good hardware recognition and full multimedia.
    It is not easy to distinguish xp livecd from xp normal hard-disk installation

    All about in this forum unfortunately it is down right now...

    Now you got me interested!
    Does it have Dialup/modem support? I am one of those who unfortunately only have dialup at home.

    Is it possible to "remaster" a Windows boot CD to include "big" software such as, let's say, Macromedia or Adobe apps? How would one do that?

    I have not tried it yet but I believe it can be done by creating "plugins".Read this

    If the files would fit on a cd + the "base" bartpe files then it should work

    There is one which I know that include 7 version of xp in single cd. It's called Michael K.H. Au-Yeung's Super WinPE UBCD 2004 Pro. This guy has released several version of it's Winpe. It won't run as fast as knoppix, you need alot of memory and powerfull enough machine to run. It's creator homepage seem has died or banned maybe.
    You can check this page if you want to:
    http://www.p2pworld.to/history/topic/108269-1.html
    You can download it's torrent or via donkey.
    I don't have to remind you about legallity, am I?
