Don't need to install the program it runs from your CD drive. Download the operating system to your desktop and follow instructions to burn to a CD.

Each time you want to use the operating system, insert the CD and boot from there. I have no personal knowledge of this particular O/S but some other suppliers of Unix based programs offer the same option.

so, is what your saying,

that dyne bolic would load instead/inplace of xp?

No,it doesn't run on a hard-drive,Dynebolic runs from the CD.To use,set your PC to boot from CD-ROM 1st,put the CD in the drive and reboot.I have used Dynebolic(I got it from a magazines DVD awhile ago)Its hard to tell the difference between these "run from CD" distros,once actually running its got most of the "default" linux applications(OpenOffice/Games,etc)that a "full" distro has,without the installer needing to know squat about linux.I use Knoppix quite often(another "Run From CD")as it gives me experience of working in linux,and when I'm fedup of linux,remove the CD,reboot and hey presto,windows again.
