  1. OK, here is what I am looking for, a familiar interface on the go, here is what I want...

    1. Fire Fox 2.x.x.x
    2. Text Editor
    3. FAST bootup
    4. A game (To kill time)
    5. Media player .wav .mp3 (Not really needed)
    6. Access to the computers HD, CD, floppy and drivers for a usb stick to save files if needed.

    Anything like that ready to go, directly to cd?

    Thanks for any help!

    And I already have Xubuntu and Ubuntu downloaded, so I guess I can give it a try, but I don't really think they boot up fast enough, (Or it could be my slow computer)

    A CD is slow by definition. You could try a live DVD if you have the drive for it, or something that boots from a USB drive.

    My 1gb USB drive is on the slow-side, I can run a live cd of UBUNTU decently on my 400mhz, 192mb ram. But On a ~3ghz, 512ram usb drive, DSL was painfully slow.

    I dont have a cd burner, and I want a cd because more systems, new and old can boot from it, a usb drive requires a floppy for most computers...

    I tried Puppy Linux, and it defaults SeaMonkey suite, not FireFox, If sompne could tell me how to install the FireFox application on to a cd (A new cd), that would be perfect!
