i have been using Paladin Linux for a while now... it is a forensic boot disc and it does almost everything i need it for except i can not install it to the HD. i understand it is a live distro and is made to boot into a forensically sound environment, but i would like to install it...
so, the question is: how would i be able to install it to the HD?
I don't think that this operating system will install to the hard drive because I have three different Knoppix cds and only one of them installs to the hard drive. It is the same thing with my SPADA CD, it does't install to the hd. All of these are forensic CDs.It might help you if you try a different version of Paladin. I find the fact that knoppix does't really install to he hard drive kind've frustrating.......but, oh well. such is life.
I'd never heard of Paladin, so I Goggled it, and, on their Web site, I saw that their 3.0 version (and perhaps the newer 4.0 version) are available (for free) as ISO images that you could, presumably, burn to a CD from which you could boot.
Since their system is Ubuntu based, you could follow the instruction for setting the GRUB2 to boot an Ubuntu ISO image. That should give you a boot-able Paladin on your computer.
There are almost limitless ways to do what you want. Some of the older Knoppix pages describe how to convert a live knoppix to a full hard drive. Some of the distro's could be booted either directly to an iso image file from grub or grub4dos. Some images could be extracted to a disk and booted. Some distro's might be able to be used like a unetbootin install or even a wubi install.
I'd be tempted to use a usb version either to a flash drive or internal drive.
