Ultimate Boot CD allows you to run floppy-based diagnostic tools from CDROM drives. It consolidates a wide array of popular diagnostic tools in to a bootable CD interface. The applications (from other companies) included are:

You need the Ultimate Boot CD if you want to Run floppy-based diagnostic utilities from CDROM drives, Free yourself from the slow loading speed of the floppy drive, or Consolidate as many diagnostic programs as possible into one bootable CD.
You need the Ultimate Boot CD if you want to:

- Run floppy-based diagnostic tools from CDROM drives. More and more PCs are shipped without floppy drives these days, and it is such a royal pain when you need to run diagnostic tools on them.

- Free yourself from the slow loading speed of the floppy drive. Even if you do have a floppy drive, it is still much much faster to run your diagnostic tools from the CDROM drive, rather than wait for the tool to load from the floppy drive.

- Consolidate as many diagnostic tools as possible into one bootable CD. Wouldnt you like to avoid digging into the dusty box to look for the right floppy disk, but simply run them all from a single CD? Then the Ultimate Boot CD is for you!

- When you boot up from the CD, a text-based menu will be displayed, and you will be able to select the tool you want to run. The selected tool actually boots off a virtual floppy disk created in memory.

Full Version: The full version contains all the tools found in the basic version but also adds the INSERT environment, a Linux distribution based on Knoppix. INSERT contains many utilities for the Linux user, such as the ability to mount most filesystems (including NTFS(rw) via Captive), ssh and sshfs which allows you to mount a filesystem over ssh, Samba client and server, IDS and testing tools such as Nessus and Snort, Rdesktop to remote control Windows servers, VNC, Qtparted for re-partitioning, iptables, and Monkey webserver are just a few of the tools found on the UBCD version of INSERT.

A disk image of an ISO 9660 file system, which is the international standard devised for storing data on CD-ROM. This image includes all of the data files and filesystem metadata which includes the boot code, structures, and attributes. All of this information is contained in a single file.

Since the ISO file system is an industry wide standard it is actually pretty easy to burn an ISO file. Almost all burning software includes an option to burn an ISO file. You have to find that "special" option in your software or it will not be burnt correctly. Below are some screen shots and instructions for some common burning software. I apologize if your software is not listed, more will be added in the future.
