Install other programs on the HDD.
This is probably a dumb question, but most of the discussions I see about running Windows from CF focus on the size of the OS, and therefore how big of a CF you need. What about installed programs? Do you set up RR, winamp, Streets & Trips, etc in c:\Program Files on the CF? Or install them on the hard drive?
Do you install the programs before or after you deploy the OS to the CF?
usually best to set everything up and test it prior to deploying to CF...fewer writes.
