Live CD from Linux User Developer not booting
I set my BIOS to boot from CD, but it just will not boot.
I boot other "Live" distros without any problem.

I contacted the magazine, bu I have not received any response.

Any ideas on this? I don't really care if I can't, I just wanted to see it perform.

What "Live CD" is it?

It was Linspire 5.0

I'm not sure about the magazine's CD or its problems (I've seen the attached disk at the stores), but you can download a 'torrent of 5.0 here:

Downloading Will Begin....
Thanks my Friend,

I downloaded the BitTorrent and Azureus. A 645.9 MB file,
I'm in business on this thanks to your tip. We all
must help one another to shoew Mr. Gates, the public
has other choices on an OS.

I actually wasn't hell bent on this distro, I just wanted to see it
as I am looking for another program to make me Hate MS Windows
even more....

Heh, well, I'm kinda fond of Windows, but I like Linux too ;) I'm glad I could help, though :) I tried the torrent myself when I was looking for distros a few weeks ago, and it worked well for me...

I'm afraid I'm not very fond of Linspire very much. I do like the inline spell checking, but I found Simply MEPIS to be a bit more
user friendly and works well off the live CD.

Linux is about making choices for now. I'm just glad I have a great replacement for Win 2000.

Solaris rules, but the average home user will need better hardware support; i.e., PnP. Now, I will run Solaris, a flavor of Linux, and 2000
on a very small partition for 2 apps that weren't ported to UNIX or Mac.

I've got a few options myself ;) For awhile, I had a triple boot Linux box with Mandriva (ugh ugh ugh), SuSE and ProMepis. Then I triple-booted Ubuntu, ProMepis and SuSE. Now I'm down to a dual-boot Ubuntu/SuSE box, have a new used Mac I just bought, and my faithful, beautiful XP box :D I think variety is the spice of life ;)
