Yeah the admin of the site asked if it should be part of the downloads section and a few of us mods said 'Hells yeah!' cause man it's go so much stuff on there, more than half of it I'll never use, but still it's a great combo of stuff there. I burned my copy already and tested it out like memtest86+ and booting into dos just cause I could lol
