   What a terrific summary! Let's hope grant will 
post his solution to the list: basically there's 
a little program that one adds to the Grub menu 
that facilitates booting from a medium that BIOS

   Christian's December 15 event is a fund-raiser 
for the Partimus effort to get Linux into more 
schools. I hope he posts details. 
   Thanks, Bobbie!
