Ive tried Puppy Linux and Slax
Puppy is okay but it cannot run Wine or a browzer
Slax lags badly.
Slax lagged on me when i tried to type an essay where mine would just freeze for a few minutes and later just come with a bunch of letters on the word.

Setting up wireless internet sharing using Linux Mint?

I am thinking about dual booting Linux Mint with Windows XP, but am yet to take the plunge because I have tried with the Live CD to make a wireless network with Internet Sharing, and it isn’t working. ANY suggestions would be much appreciated.

I downloaded Ubuntu OS, did I lose everything?

I was trying to make a Live CD for Ubuntu(Linux), I had never done it before. Then I clicked download because my friend told me thats what you do. So basically, I boot up my computer and it’s Ubuntu, with none of my old applications, pictures or anything. Did I lose it all? Or can I just choose to boot in Windows Vista from the BIOS or something?
I said…..format entire drive……im guessing since I did that it is a no.
And I can run Ubuntu w/o the disc in it

Can you install The Linux Operating system to a USB drive?

I was thinking about trying this. Trying to install a Linux Operating system to a 8 GB USB Memory. Will it work? I want to Boot from a CD rom and then install to the USB Memory. I don’t like running a live CD all the time and I think it will be much faster and will also free up my CD rom. It would also be great because if it worked I could also get upgrades wear as a Live CD is limited to certain things.
