I have already knoppix on one USB (in fact a compactflash I used on an USB adapter and now this CF is in the PC with an IDE adapter). But I am running out of USB.
So, if there is no other solution than using a virtual machine, I wil do it.
The problem is not so simple. Yes, some iso images can be booted directly. Yet, not all can be easily booted directly and not all can be booted from a usb flash. I only keep two flash that I use for linux boot. I select one to erase when I want to choose.
Why not use a Virtual Machine would be my question? They are the most simple way to boot an iso or image or pre-made vm or dd copy of hard drive or usb or cd or almost any media.
I only use VM's for testing. They boot faster from the OS I am on. They boot way faster than a usb or cd every could. They take only a few seconds to create and destroy. They can be transported, shared and used like any file. What is the down side?
ok. ok. Virtual machine.
I have tinyCoreLinux (my preferred distro currently). Which extension should I use?
qemu? or another one?
my pc is a low spec pc: it should be adapted to a vm program.
