Um ERD commander is about 1,500 buy it and you have a XP version that doesn't need a HDD it uses the CD and its mainly only used for troubleshooting. I use it at the shop a lot very handy.

Sucks they dont have a free version, it's an awesome program.

Also a windows terminal client could boot off a terminal server and the computer would run without a HD.
