    Poor Man's DVD Install

    Don't have a DVD burner...yet. But wanted to see what was on the new DVD. Downloaded it and then used the bootfrom= cheatcode to boot the iso. Very cool feature, thanks Fabian. Used a 3.8.2 CD to boot it, and it worked for the most part. Got a slew of errors while booting about not finding lib modules 2.6.11. I see the kernel on the DVD is 2.6.12. Didn't think it would boot up at all with all the errors, but it did. Internet browsers wouldn't work. But the games I tried seemed to work OK. Probably not too stable of a system running it this way, but at least I get to check it out. Looking forward to trying this with the 4.0 CD. LOTS of stuff on that DVD edition.

    I used Azureus to DL it. It almost overwhelms my old PIII 500 with Win 98. Wonder if there is any live linux CDs with a torrent program on them. Might work better than Win 98. Don't think Knoppix has one on it. Don't remember any mention of it in the forums.

    You can very easily boot the Knoppix DVD iso with the correct kernel, modules and libraries. Look in here:
    http://www.knoppix.net/forum/viewtop...=asc&start=250
    It will boot the knoppix DVD from the iso file being on a ntfs or fat or ext partition of your hd.
    Please let me know if this works for you. Cheers,
    Gilles
