    Other Live CD's

    To get this forum started, here's a link to some of the other Live CD's for Linux that are available.

    And even this list is incomplete! It's missing, for example, at the time of this posting, Helix

    Pleased to see a listing of so many Live CD's. It would take a user a whale of a lot of time to evaluate so many.

    However, your list might be expanded to include Live DVD's as well and those are fewer. Thus, one could try more than one and have some comments in comparing several.

    Just a thought on the subject.

    7 distros on 1 Live CD

    7 distros on 1 Live CD, as seen on distrowatch weekly
    If you are a fan of mini Linux live CDs, you might be interested in "Multi Distro", a compilation of several bootable mini live CDs on one disk. The latest version includes no fewer than seven distributions; these are SLAX 4.2.0, BeatrIX November 04, Damn Small Linux 0.8.4, INSERT 1.2.16, SAM 1.1, GeeXboX 0.99, and Recovery Is Possible. The CD also comes with Memtest86, a memory diagnostic program. All these options are neatly arranged in the initial GRUB menu - just take your pick and boot whichever distribution you fancy trying out today. The project doesn't seem to have an official web site, but the latest ISO image, version 2.0, is available for free download from here: mdv20.iso (699MB).

    In regards to the "Multi Distro", I forgot to mention that I have tried it out & it is really cool. If you have the bandwidth then give it a shot.

    Tried out Helix Live CD and find it fascinating, certainly not the usual!

    I loaded it...TORAM...in my athlon 1900+ with 3GB ram in 3 minutes to desktop.

    Much to search through in the OS and most of it strange to the uninitiated(like me!).

    May linux

    I just recently discovered May linux. Seems very new, but nice. Similar feel to DSL, using fluxbox, but includes OpenOffice and better fonts. Still playing with it. Check it out.

    Kowood, this may come as a shock to you but ram is faster than hard disk.

    Verifying of md5 checksum and burning a CD at slow speed are important.
