Hi all,

Just want to say that now you can buy on ebay an external USB DVD drive-burner for 15-20$.
As a long-time Asus EEE user, I found it to be really useful. But, it is true that LiveCD are sometimes painfully slow to use on real CD drive.

While UnetBootIn does not work always on first try, I have yet to see it fail completely.
I see that if I don't use the computer at all while UnetBootIn works, I get better results, but the same goes for dd too.

Have a great day!
