    Tinfoili Hat Linux


    Hi, I am having problems with Tinfoil Hat Linux installation. I burned a copy of the IMG file on one disk that won't boot, so then I tried another disk where I converted the IMG file to ISO and burned it to a disk. That didn't work either. It says on the website to burn it to a floppy disk, does that have something to do with it not booting? It has the modern x86 architecture, so I don't know what is happening. Thanks for your help, if you haven't seen Tinfoil it looks awesome, I can't wait to try it out.

    Explain exact steps taken to make the boot able image on cd or dvd.

    Setting up Tinfoil Hat Linux ..
    ***********************************************
    You must first copy the Tinfoil hat disk image to a floppy disk.
    If you don't know how to do this, google search for "rawrite" or
    "dd of=/dev/fd0". The command you will use is "rawrite thl.img a: "
    or "dd if=thl.img of=/dev/fd0"
