Dunno about the fiver specifically, but Cheapbytes charges $1.99 for the CD. (Where they get you is shipping costs. Also, one should never mail money -- checks and money orders can be stolen but at least one has a fighting chance of finding the culprit.)
I'll have to try that. Fortunately, I have CD-RW, so that if I do have a coaster I can just blank it. :-) Linux just doesn't seem to have problems burning CD's, if one has a good CD burner.
My burns have all been successful, but they've also been from a local disk.
I paid $80 for mine, which is probably about right. It also has abilities for reading USB flash drives and (presumably) digital camera memory units. (No, I don't have a digital camera.)
Maybe so, but XP seems to have problems. Remember that DFS loves XP... :-)
Well, there is that. Of course with my luck the BIOS is going to be part of the problem; think Windows-specific extensions thereto that cannot be accessed from Linux. Yeah, that'll be wonderful...not.
I'll admit, I prefer multiple parbreastions...but yeah, one can experiment for a bit using a single (one doesn't really need swap, either; just create a local swap file and use *it* instead), then once one figures out where everything goes and how much space is needed, one can reparbreastion and reinstall.
