The slowdown is significant, unless you have a large amount of ram, then you can specify an option to load the cd into ram. An install will definatly make the system zippier.

2-2.5gigs for the knx install... plus however much free space you want. There is a lot of data on a knx cd.

I'm not saying it was on here, but between the pair of them they put me off Linux and Linux people since then. The amount of help I've got (and given) on Windows is very large indeed. The amount of help I have had on Linux boards is ZERO.

Mind - they WERE both british, and being british myself, I know what a small amount of them are like.
What's wrong with being British? Although clearly you're not doing much to give us a good rep

I'm also British, and try to help people whenever I can. If the support you're getting for windows is so great, and the support you're getting for linux is so bad then why the hell are you here at all?

I guess it's true what they say about miserable bloody northerners.
