    To install a program:
    Code:
    apt-get install <program>
    To search for a program:
    Code:
    apt-cache search <field>
    Before doing either of these make sure your package list is up to date by doing:
    Code:
    apt-get update

    If you burned it to a CD just forget about installing any other programs. It won't work. USB boot is a different story. Best of Luck!

    You can install whatever programs you want when using a Live CD, they just don't survive a reboot.
