    Sounds like illegal software, even if NT4 is not sold / supported anymore by MS (which I don't even know), it's still their copyrighted stuff...

    Microsoft's license, I am sure, does not permit modifications. Let alone redistribution of their IP. Labeling a retail OS with some pre-packed program does not constitute your own OS.

    If you want to offer your very own OS to someone, then learn to build from the GNU/Linux camp. You can start with the basics using LFS, Linux From Scratch. Then you can pack any programs you want and offer it for free, legally.

    i can only provide you with an nt4 installer and of course only current nt4 users* can use it, a bit of a misunderstanding i think
