Thanks to Sugar Labs you can now have your Ubuntu 8.10 or Fedora 10 linux distributions with sugar on it…..Shweet :-). Yep you heard right, go here and grab your OLPC XO inspired 1GB USB stick image and boot all those old PC’s into sugar. According to Walter Bender (the creator of Sugar OS) a new version dubbed Sucrose 0.84 is on its way soon. Complete article (including interview with Mr. Bender) is over at XConomy.
University of Massachusetts Dartmouth: ATMC Physics Professor Gaurav Khanna and Principal Investigator Chris Poulin have created a great step-by-step guide that shows you how $4000 and a bit of elbow grease can get you a nice supercomputer cluster. They use Fedora Core 8 distribution, due to the prevalence of Fedora and its Cell SDK (3.0) compatibility

I’d covered Fedora’s Live USB creator a while back. But for those of you wanting to install other flavours of linux on a USB stick (or a HD even), the process was lengthy and cumbersome. That was before UNetbootin, the Universal Netboot Installer. You see UNetbootin can be run from Linux or Windows and will enable you to install a fully functional linux distro to a USB stick or even a spare partition.
The current version has built-in support for the following distributions:
So go ahead and try some of those acquired flavors of Linux, or that FreeBSD you always wanted to install, but were too scared to. After all it’s only a USB stick, if it screws up just format and reinstall in 5-10 minutes using UNetbootin again.
UNetbootin can also be used to load various system utilities, including:
So have fun and happy installing…..

I wanted to install the AccessGrid 3.1 collaborative software under FC9.0 earlier on and discovered that the machine didn’t have a CD or DVD. It did however have a newer mobo that allows for USB booting, so I searched around and found Fedora liveusb-creator. What a beauty, the fedora guys make it really simple to get Fedora live CD stuffed onto a USB stick. All you need is the software, a 1GB+ stick and a windows machine. Here is the process:
Sit back and watch the progress bar, there is also helpful messages in the little window. Once everything is done “safely” remove your USB Stick and use it to boot into Fedora Core 9. Don’t forget that you might have to change your boot device in BIOS to the USB key (or sometimes just pressing ESC during BIOS boot gets you to a boot menu).
