    Not sure about running a LiveCD, but you can use Cygwin to get a Linux environment on Windex.

    It's not possible, regardless the method you want to use. The only way is to install it through VMware, if you want to run it while you're in Windows.

    There is a linux that will run within windows, it's called Topologilinux, it is not a live distro, jeremy1701 reviewed it here.

    If you download the complete cygwin suite (Free BTW ) You can run windowmaker manager on it for a gui.
    Plus you can drop and drag files from the host to cygwin if needed. It is pretty slick for a no cost add on. It even comes with perl. "Not Too Shabby"

    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.
