    RAM Linux CD needed


    I need to buy (my burner wont support iso/rawwrite) RAM Linux on CD. I since I need to buy from with U.S. dollars, anyone have a source I can buy one from in U.S.?

    Edit: I found a site listing serveral at http://www.distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=cd , I'll post a update when I get one.

    Edit #2: All I could find where ISO files which I can't use. So I've dropped my sights on a decent "Linux on a Disk" goal. I've download and created tomsrtbt linux from http://www.toms.net/rb/ I've run it on a desktop and laptop so far. It vary limited (its a floppy my god ) but does do some basic newbie stuff but not all newbie stuff I would like. Anyone have another "Linux on a disk" that supports most of the linux basic new user commands?

    Note: My home machine is dual boot Windoz, so I want something at home I can try Linux stuff out on. It is at work where the linux servers are

    Suse linux.

    Disk 7 is normally a LIVE disk which is linux on a cd (bootable) with no need for a hdd even, or so i have been informed.

    Ive never used it personally but have had it suggested back in the days when I was first starting to play with linux.

    If your looking for something like Knoppix 3.1......... I have the iso's on my computer. I could burn you a copy (ready to use) if you want one. Just PM me with your snail mail address.

    I assume that's what your wanting. A bootable cd rom that puts linux in your ram and no hard drive is needed? If so, PM me. I'm in the US and I could drop one in the mail for you.

    edit-- actually... I have Knoppix 3.1 AND Knoppix 3.2 both. Knoppix 3.2 is very nice.

    Wish I would have known that a few hours ago before I bought a copy of Suse 8.x . Well if it sucks, I take you up on your offer. I should be getting it in the mail in a week or so.

    I suggest knoppix.
    Also, some useful sites:
    www.linuxiso.org
    www.linuxemporium.co.uk

    You should be able to obtain whatever distro you like from here, regardless of where you are. But you have an offer already
