View Full Version : [xubuntu] Boot Xbuntu 8.04 alternate cd from pen drive in windows? /Best Distro for computer?
June 8th, 2008, 10:33 PM
I have yet to find a way to do this ,but it seems like it would be possible. I can't use the live cd because the computer has 256MB of RAM.
And if it's not possible to do it that way, what would be the best distro from a computer with these specs?
-the Flash drive is 2GB
-I have no cd's

pendrivelinux.com is a great website for stuff like this.
USB Xubuntu 8.04 Persistent install from Linux (http://www.pendrivelinux.com/2008/05/21/usb-xubuntu-804-persistent-install-from-linux/)
USB Xubuntu 8.04 Persistent install from Live CD (http://www.pendrivelinux.com/2008/05/21/usb-xubuntu-804-persistent-install-from-live-cd/)

You might want to try Mepis AntiX. its small and lightweight, designed to run will on computers with lower end specs. It is debian based so a lot of what you see here applies.
Fluxbuntu is also a good choice. Get it here:

Here's a good article too (its the one that pointed me to "Pendrive Linux" in the first place).
