Can somebody tell a the name of a tool that can be used to send 
ICMP packet
of size > 64K on windows. i have to crash a machine using ping of death as
my first assignment in Pen-Testing class. i am unable to do this using the
biult in ping utilities in windows and linux. i could not find any tool on
the internet as well.

your best bet would be to use the cygwin pakage, it is a set of unix tools for windows, just find the source of the 
ping tools in the nettools pakage, modify the source where it checks the size of the packet and compile it. 

that way you should have a ping.exe that does exactly what you want : create bigger packets that 65K
