When you change things running from Live CD, files get changed in various places. You would have to know where they all are and copy them to a floppy or a small partition on your harddrive.
LiveCDs are not intended for everyday use (they are SLooooooW), but rather for demonstration or evaluation. Why not simply install to the harddrive?
I tried, and had to re-install my winxp. I went through the install of SimplyMEPIS Linux and I guess I don't fully understand when it gets to resizing and making partition for Linux. After install and re-boot linux ran ok, but after another reboot, winxp would not run, and SimplyMEPIS Linux would lock my laptop. Not sure what happen. Maybe did not give it enough room. I really like PCLinuxOS but wireless would not work.
thanks for your reply.
