This should be an easy one for you guys.
I have downloaded this as a RAR file, 171MB
I can extract this to view it's contents, but could someone please tell me the procedure to set it up on a CD so it can be used.

I downloaded it from [edited] perfectly fine the other day after Wainui mentioned it in another thread.

Its simple a zip file with the keyboard patch and image inside.

Speedy as far as I'm aware its freeware.

As per Wikipedia's entry on Hiren's boot CD - Legality (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hiren%27s_boot_CD#Legality):

There are many freeware and abandonware applications included on the boot CD; however, the CD also includes multiple pirated copyrighted programs from companies such as Symantec and Acronis to name a few.

Due to the inclusion of pirated copyrighted works, Hiren's Boot CD is legally considered "warez" and pirated intellectual property; downloading and/or possessing the CD has various legal implications according to the persons global location such as violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act in the USA.

Regardless on how helpful this is, or who else uses it, asking for help with pirated software is against the forum rules.
