The version on the DVD is 0.3.1. The latest version on the net is 0.3.3.
The installation process is radically different. Personally, I would
prefer the method from 0.3.1. I tried the 0.3.3 no a different flash
disk. I am also looking at alternatives for USB-based Linux. The
magazine mentions several ones, and a previous issue also mentions some.
I will try to find it back and list them here. I am also considering
doing some presentation on this at the next meeting, if time permits.

Got the new LinuxFormat and there it is (FlashLinux)! Now to read up on
it and brace myself to take the plunge.
Checked my boot order and found I have floppy cdrom hd lan. No USB so I
guess I'll be making a boot floppy or modifying my existing GRUB. Hmm...
guess I'll probably need a floppy for the Winlose machine.
I've got a 20GB FireFly USB drive that I might eventually try it on if
the JumpDrive installation is successful.
Thanks for your replies - any hints, tips etc. will be gratefully
