You can mount a Linux filesystem from a file (image)
(indeed, most boot floppies do so); and there's a
program called loadlin.exe which can be started in DOS
mode with some shortcut-fiddling. I'm not sure how to
set this up in Mandrake though (or any installer for

hi everyone. i always understood that mandrake could be installed as an
image within a windows partition (not that its the most ideal way but i
have someone who needs this sort of thing for preference), and could be
launched from win. does this still hold true? am i hallucinating? need
slapping? or is there another distro that does this?
any help appreciated.

A number of people have emailled me privately saying they are new users and
they're intereted in the LUG. I hope you're all on this list.
Regarding the AGM tonight, there won't be any presentation as such, nor will
there be any set time for dealing with peoples Linux problems. However
there will be a lot of people there that you might want to come along and
meet, no doubt there'll be a couple of computers up that you can have a play
with and we'd like to encourage as many people as possible to come along and
join the society.
So while there will be a couple of issues that you're unaware of, hopefully
you'll get an idea of what the society is like, and might even like to
consider getting involved.
My technician at school is looking for the debian cd's.
If he provides the some blank cd's can someone burn them?

I would like to apologise for not getting to the meeting tonight but am keen to pay a sub. Where to? It should be tax deductible?
Also do you know the Green Party has been asking questions in Parliament about Departments looking into Linux and has recently made a press release. See www.greens.org.nz

I was after a debian woody install cd, I live in Rotorua, so if anyone
has a copy over here can I copy it?
