I do not want to repartition my PC hard drive


You’ve noticed by now that our lab exercises are mostly Linux-based. This is for a reason: All the software we use at the lab is freely available. But it is very likely you have a Windows-only PC. Fear no more, you may use Knoppix (fantastic Linux distribution that boots up from a CD or DVD). It contains all that you need to complete most of the exercises without installing anything on your PC, just boot the system off the CD media. You can download the latest version from this FTP. As it is an on-campus mirror you should expect ultra-fast download. Just burn the ISO and that’s all. You’ll find a complete desktop, development tools, Java-support, audio and video players, and some games too. And you can’t beat the price. Feel free to share it.
