DistroWatch Weekly

DistroWatch Weekly has some news on a new tool used to create LiveCDs for Fedora. This will be replacing Kadischi for future LiveCDs.

Those who enjoy remastering the distribution for their own purposes will be excited to learn about “pungi” and “pilgrim”, two tools that will allow building custom distributions and live CDs/DVDs.

Preparing for Vista

PC Advisor details the steps needed to setup a computer to dual boot Windows XP and Vista. The tool used is the GParted LiveCD.

If you don’t have a partition manager, download an ISO image of the GParted Live CD from gparted.sourceforge.net and burn a CD from it. This is a free partition manager based on Linux and an essential addition to any serious PC user’s toolkit.

Collax Takes Appliance Approach

eWeek is reporting that Collax has released their latest offering in LiveCD form for customers to test.

The installation disk for Collax Business Server is freely downloadable and doubles as a LiveCD, so the product is rather easy to take for a spin.
