Default Re: Thinking of trying Linux...

All right, one last question:

The "Live CD." My cursory understanding of this is that I can d/l a CD image, burn it to a disk, pop it in the drive and boot from it (or do I not need to boot from it? I don't remember), and experience the distro without actually installing it, right? But if I want to make modifications (such as installing Beryl), I'll have to actually do the full install, right?

For all my XP knowledge, I feel like such a babe in the woods, here...
E4300 @ 3GHz (lapped) || Tuniq Tower 120 (lapped) || Gigabyte EP45-UD3L || eVGA 8800GTS 640MB @ 648/1512/999 || 6GB DDR2-800 @ 5-5-5-15|| 74GB Raptor || 80GB Caviar || 250GB WD || Corsair HX520W || Samsung 225BW 22" LCD (1680x1050) || X-Fi XtremeGamer || Win7 RC x64 || Antec SX1040BII Server Tower || Altec-Lansing ATP3 Speakers
No comprehension to fail; I vacuum the wind for my sail
Can't be the rest; Let others waste my time?
Owning success is the bottom line
