Hack-able Boot-able CD?

Is there anything like a bottable CD, that you can ether install or boot to practice hacking?
Like a windows disk that has problems wrong with it that you can exploit and then fix? That would be so great.
Any other practice hacking advice?

I would have thought that an unpatched copy of windows would have heaps that you could play with?

Re: Hack-able Boot-able CD?

If it's bootable CDs you're looking for, then Linux is your only option. There's always things like BartPE or other ways to boot to a Windows environment, but probably not what you want in a pen testing lab. VMware has some images that include versions of Windows, but with licensing issues, they're not unlimited.

Chan's suggestion is a good one.

Brian also makes a good point. Install Windows with no patches especially SP1, and it should be ready to hack immediately after install.
