As shall I:

NetBSD Live! CDs are also available and possible.  The first NetBSD
Live! CD (created by Joerg Braun) was a CD that boots NetBSD 1.5.2/i386
from CDROM, allows some system config (german language dialogs, sorry!),
selection of X config, then allows starting one of several window
managers, e.g. KDE2. Under KDE2, Koffice is ready to run.

The ISO image can be obtained from
ftp://ftp.NetBSD.org/pub/NetBSD/iso/1.5.2/i386live.iso.gz (also
available: md5sum and a cover (by Hubert Feyrer)). Note that the scripts
to (re)create the CD are also part of the image.

All credits and many thanks go to J?rg Braun (jb at toolbox-mag dot de),
who developed this gem. Please  see the README
(ftp://ftp.NetBSD.org/pub/NetBSD/iso/1.5.2/README.i386live) for more

Finally, some more instructions on creating your custom Live! CD are at


I always said there was something fundamentally wrong with the universe.
