Durned post moved while I was typing!!!
But it saved my stuff, so here's my copy/paste:http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/http://windowsxp.mvps.org/index.html
I've got 4 separate flash drives that I use at work (1, 2, 4, and 8 gB). Each has my work tools that are prescribed by the company (so I can't give them out). The rest have other tools that I've found are handy by trial and error and space constraints. I've found that the 4 gB holds plenty and the 2 gB is adequate as long as I don't keep copies of CD's on it.
My 8gB got full of stuff I never used.
Here's a list of most of the stuff that I had on it before I broke it (since been RMA'd). I'm just copying the filenames - so some may not make sense:
BartPE ISO (with all the plugins)
Norton Removal Tool
Webroot System Analyzer
Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor
GPEdit for XPHome - Internet shortcut
j79zlr's tips and tweaks group policy for xp home - Internet shortcut
Testing your PSU Rails - Extreme Overclocking - Internet shortcut
Using a Multimeter - Internet shortcut
nmsetup.exe (network monitor)
Latest nVidia drivers for XP and Vista
Latest ATI drivers for XP and Vista
All the portable apps from www.portableapps.com (to include an updated version of ClamWin antivirus.
a copy of SP2
etc, etc, etc.
Mostly it'll be finding what you need when you want it and adding it to the flash drive. Then, periodically go through the drive and delete the stuff that you don't use. As you download stuff, download the Zip files rather than the .exe's (if you have a choice) - it's easier to get the zips to work standalone than it is the exe's.
I've got tons more stuff scattered about - it'd too much to sort with an 8 gB drive.
Also, look at this thread for some nice, free tools: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic3616.html
Finally, some DOS utilites are nice to have, as are some precompiled registry edits that you can merge with a double click.
