Sticking it to MS - 04/18/07 02:39 PM

Well i'm stuck using a PC in my car until I get my mini. Apart from that I keep getting harddrive crashes from the PC in the car. I did find in my box of CDs BartPE. I made a custom windows PE disk and even made it bootable from a hard drive. I also made it bootable off of a 512MB CF card w/ CF to IDE adapter.

Sadly WinPE is very bare and software and i've been trying to get windows media player to work and with a Front End program called Mobile Impact. So far I havn't got much working but im still in a search for a front end that doesn't need WMP.

Heres a list of programs I got working.

FireFox
Nero
Flash Player 8
WinRAR
WinImage

You could try Damn small Linux, it is a distro of linux that boots of a CD. It only takes up 50MB of space and can be installed to the HD. It is also really easy to install other apps that are not included.

I've used DSL in the past and wasn't all that great. Knoppix would be better to use.
