How do I create a Boot CD with Windows 2000?

I need to create a Boot CD with Windows 2000 and its most basic configuration. So that I can use this CD to boot on any of the other dozen computers in my office that have either Windows ME, Windows 2000 or Windows XP for test and diagnosis purposes in case that computer has any problem.
I saw earlier some links to create such boot CD but for Windows 95 and 98, and that won't be helpful since this boot CD need to recognize both FAT32 and NTSF formatted hard drives.

Look into BartPE - in addition, consider using Knoppix - a version of linux run entirely from a CD and it can Read NTFS drives.

Knoppix is the best bet for you. It has GUI, and complete access to NTFS partitions (that too without needing any password!!).
