Re: Live CD without CD?

If its new enough to boot from USB, then use livecd-tools to create a bootable USB flash drive and install from that.

With the recent advent of 64GB USB flash drives, its not unreasonable to use a converted livecd as the main drive for the system.

I have one with two partitions. Both are formatted as ext3, which allows the system to boot with both a root and home partition extension greater than 2GB.

On the other partition, I have my music collection.

Now, when I am away from work or home, I can plug this USB stick into any computer that can boot it, and have my normal working environment! Its nice.

Good Luck!
