The beginner's guide to Linux that runs from CD. Kppix is an astoundingly clever product. It runs Linux completely from CD. There is need to install. It bypasses all the software already installed on your PC or laptop. It automatically detects the hardware in your computer, such as video card, sound card, networking, the lot (subject to suitable hardware). When you've finished using Kppix, simply restart. Your computer will return to your regular system, and it will behave as if thing has happened. Kppix is Free Software and open source under the terms of the GNU General Public Licence (GPL). This is t a dummies book. Instead, it is for smart people who want - or need - to run Kppix for the very first time.
