Bootable Linux and Shell CD's

I think a meeting on the different bootable Linux CD's like Knoppix (http://www.knoppix.net/) and KnoppixSTD (http://www.knoppix-std.org/), and XLiveCD (http://xlivecd.indiana.edu/). We could talk about the advantiages of using these tools, like data recovery, servers, remote, etc. What do you guys think? Rivitir

Re:Bootable Linux and Shell CD's

This link: http://www.metropipe.net/ProductsPVPM.shtml is a version of knoppix and DSL, it has knoppix and DSL all over it, and it runs in Linux (any distro) and windows. In fact I think it is the same version of DSL that you buy on a USB stick, only this you download for free and extract onto your USB drive.

Re:Bootable Linux and Shell CD's

If you want to learn and play with an embedded system just go to Damn Small Linux. They have a version of the OS for this specific purpose. There is actually a multiple boot version for your USB drive that allows you to run Damn Small Linux from within Damn Small Linux!

If we want to get some guest speakers, John Andrews of Robert Shingledecker from DSL would be good choices. They are doing some really innovative things with a distro under 50mb.

Re:Bootable Linux and Shell CD's

Thats what I get for missing a couple of meetings. In that case then, what about this little distro, was there ever a meeting on something like this??? http://www.metropipe.net/ProductsPVPM.shtml I like it because for 1 it's handy, and 2 because I think its another good way to learn Linux without ever having to install (or restart the system for that matter) Linux on a system with windows already installed. It runs in Linux and Windows right from your USB drive. You can run it from your hard drive but I wouldn't suggest it.
