Meeting – 3 live distros

Next meeting Saturday 9th May.
At this meeting (2009-05-02)
We played with (demonstrated) 3 live Distros, Mint, PC LOS, and Puppy.
These distros can be used without having to install anything. Just put the disk in the drive and reboot.
Once you have finished playing, reboot without the disk and its gone.
We also used the PCLOS disk to make a system that dual booted Win XP and PCLOS.
This gives you the option to choose either XP or PCLOS as the machine is starting.
Lastly, Puppy Linux was installed to a USB stick and made bootable.
This system lets you use Puppy linux on any machine capable of booting from USB and it will not affect anything
installedon that machine.
