I read this thread and thanks alot for all the links, I do Have a question however. I live in Minnesota and it gets cold. Cold enough to stop a hard drive from spinning. So I was looking for a suggestion about a linux distro that would work on a flash drive. I have a 6 gig, and im not even sure that its possible but could you concievably just get a usb hub and string a few of these together?
Sorry for all the questions, any help/suggestions, or just a hey dummy look at this thread would be great.
Failure is not an option....
It's installed by default on every version of Windows.
If you have 6 gb that is plenty enough for many distributions. I believe if you do a server install with ubuntu, and install xorg and any other apps you might want you'll have a full system up that takes up less than 1GB. Maybe xubuntu is an option but I don't know what the full install takes up. I've tried using DSL and didn't like it much, but anyone would be different.
