 Boot a Dead PC with Nothing but a Thumb Drive

Nice overview.

"Recovery Is Possible Linux: This specialized, minimal Linux distribution—best known as RIP Linux—provides recovery tools for both Windows and Linux installations. It can boot into a workable desktop on many types of hardware. I like RIP for its small size (35 MB) and because it contains applications designed for data recovery. RIP Linux weighs in at 72 MB, leaving 47 MB for additional rescue images (that's more than 30 1.44-MB floppies) and run-time storage."
