Hey everyone,

I'm planning to burn some disks for disaster recovery, for use when I
go and help folk out.
Just wondering if there are any really good distros targeting disaster
recovery for windoze.
The following features are a must.

Must boot on older hardware.
Must fit on single ISO image.
Must read AND write all MSDOS formats including all flavors of NTFS.

Would be helpful if the distro came ready to roll with ClamAV, as well
as gParted or something similar for partition table fixing as well as
some good file recovery utilities preferably something that can
recover files even if the MBR and the File Allocation Table have been

Any suggestions folks?
