That wasn't my intention at all. What I meant was that if my understanding of the technical side of things is correct then having such a package to place on a USB would make life easier for those who don't want to remove or damage the host OS.

Helpful said he ended up leaving at midnight because he couldn't get the emulator to work with Xandros. I like Xandros and don't want to switch to Ubuntu.

It hardly surprised me, my experience with Linux is that 2 out of three apps just won't install because they need something I don't understand or can't find. I've used Mandriva, Suse and flavors of Ubuntu

Wouldn't it have been easier if all Helpful had to do was plug in a USB and turn the computer on?

Perhaps there is an easier way of achieving this - if so please share :-)
