running fedora live (cd, usb, sd)


hi, i know running from live cd or dvd can be slow because of the need to wait for the drive to spin up to speed.
my question is: what runs faster: booting fedora-live from usb, from the hard drive, or from the sd card ?
thanks,

well, you can boot fedora live from hd 2 ways; as you do from usb, frugal
or as a full hd install (normal install)

it will run from hd install probably a little faster than frugal hd install
it will run from any hd install faster than usb
usb faster than cd

why do you wanna know?

thx, i was planning on buying a sd card since my new work laptop has the ability to boot from sd card. but if if it is slower than live-usb, then it would be a waste of money.

my current fc-11 live-usb kinda' chugs sometimes...

not sure about sd card
it should be comparable to a usb I would think
but not sure...
its probably worth a shot though

fastest boot I've seen from usb is Sidux-2009.02-xfce

I do know that the LXDE edition boots faster in any situation vs the gnome edition
