I bought my first OS system today in bookshop, it cost me 3 EUR. Interesting live distribution called ABCLinux based on Knoppix. I was particulary curious how this would run in VMWare as well directly on my HW. Booting to HW was OK, booting in VMWare as well (using kernel 2.6.x). Now how to make your own live distribution with bunch of favorite packages (instead of using those predefined). There ara many articles refering to remastering Knoppix, I have used : linuxdevcenter and tina-knoppix. Now I run my master Knoppix from HDD (using Grub loader from Debian) inside VMWare being ready for remastering.
