Huge NTFS Prob Solved by Linux?
Need help w/ a NTFS Read/Write Boot Disk

I decided to ask the question that is probably eating away at every tech support person out there who isn't that familiar w/ Linux: How can I create a boot disk in order to read/write to NTFS partitions?

Basically, I work at a techshop, and about 66%-75% of the problems we get turn out to be viruses or hard drive errors. We run Ontrack for the hd's, no problems there since it runs caldera. Our boot cd, which can run the virus scan, can't mount NTFS drives for reading. There are expensive DOS options, but my corporation won't pay for it. What I need is a free *nix solution.

I have searched the net, and found some solutions (Knoppix, pw resetting tools that probably could be retrofitted), but I was wondering if anyone had a boot cd image they would be willing to share, or a website where one can be downloaded.

Help! Running virus scan under XP Safe Mode just doesn't cut it! All the system files can't be scanner...

I believe Tom's disc [toms.net], and Lnx BBC [lnx-bbc.org] can mount NTSF partitions.
mount -t ntfs /dev/hdd1 /mnt/windows
