At the last meeting of the Halifax Area Personal Computer Club we had a
demonstration of a Linux learning tool in the form of a 'Live Disk'.
The first thing that popped into my little mind was using a live disk to
allow me to do remote system admin from those Windows boxes that are
always under foot.
The disk demo-ed did not have a ssh client although it did have a
I know that I can mount an iso image but I'm assuming that I couldn't
manipulate it - i.e. add a ssh client.
So, am I correct in thinking that I've got to build a disk (HD) with the
features I want (ssh, dialup ?) and then take an image of it and burn
the image to a CD.
The live disk is an attractive starting point because it is already set
up to be quite tolerant of hardware.
The next stage Version 1.1 ... ;-) would be a Mac equivalent or would
that be Ver 4.0 ... assuming it's possible at all ...;-)
