CentOS LiveCD or USB


Hello!
I am looking to create a CentOS liveCD. However, I have a 4GB flash drive thhat I would rather put it on. Will CentOS fit on a 4GB flash drive?
Also, where can I download the iso file needed for the liveCD/USB?
Thanks,
Labarr15

I believe that Linux .iso install files are smaller than 4G.

Mine was...

Plough through www.centos.org in order to find the files appropriate for your needs.

It's worth putting in the work to understand the list of mirrors at boot.kernel.org as well.

Do yourself a favor and post your progress here (helping the rest of us learn with you!)

See pendrivelinux.com for a few ways to use "LIVE" installs.

In centos the iso would be an installer image and not a live image as such. If you go to the live page you can get a live image. https://projects.centos.org/trac/livecd/
