BootCD can do it but it takes an ungodly amount of time to boot up. The only fast-booting diagnostic CD I have is Disk Warrior. I've given up on making diagnostic CDs for OS X, using a small Firewire hard drive with a stripped-down system instead. This lets me pack as many diagnostics as I want on one disk.<br><br>
I'm beta testing BootCD for Tiger, it works very well, so I would expect it will be available soon. Its really only an emergency option though, since it boots SO slowly compared to an external HD.<br><br>
A used 10GB laptop hard drive, a bus-powered Firewire enclosure and a 12" Firewire cable makes for a nifty diagnostic drive for well under $100. It boots fast and you can update it pretty easily.<br><br>

Will make one of my own.<br><br>
