It is NOT a standard. I know most of the windows users I have seen

However if you intend it to be a single purpose CD kit I suggest you strip

simple and just strip it completely so it runs from CD and does work only
for the single tasks intended.
I hate duplicates. Just reply to the relevant mailinglist.
