I keep with me Ultimate Boot CD on CD and USB, Windows XP Windows Vista, Windows 7, A USB stick with software on and an Intel Network card Driver CD.
Anyway, much like people have said:
Drivers disk for the 4 different machine makeups in the school
Unatttended OS disks (until I get WDS or FOG working! lol)
Ubuntu Live CD
OphCrack for the odd machine that I've not got round to sorting from my predecessors network / workgroup hybrid he seemed to be running
CloneZilla (both USB and CD)
That seems to be about all I need. Anything else is stored on a network share that I can access using the tools above should I need to.
Just hirens, it's all you need!

Please don't post links to illegal software on here.
Interesting thread as just creating our department usb stick so far:
RM CC4 Build Disk
Couple of scripts one for getting all rm log files & zipping. Then another that is used to change serial number after bios has been flashed.
Just reading few of others people suggested (of course apart from hiren)
All linked with nice grub4dos menu.
Looks so much more professional to a customer when when he/she hears the infamous phrase "Oh shoot, it doesn't boot to USB!" followed by the divine sounds of organs and angel's harps as you open the Holy Grail of "ye ole compactus disci" and voila! - pc fixed!

... and to this day the topic matter still runs rampant as some customers are not affected or care about such things as a date or time... hence the obvious flavor of age in my post!
Point is... it STILL happens and these GOOD posts have helped out many ppl, myself included... otherwise if these threads were ACTUALLY necro (dead) then they would not still be here to help us out... ;-)
SO: thanks for everyone's input on this thread, most of this is STILL good info and should not be considered dead because good info is NEVER dead - even if the original post was ONLY 2 years old... (betcha there's software/hardware that's older than 2yo in most customer's computers!)
great site too... lots of info. Keep up the good work!
