On the subject of ISO files (previous post), if you have downloaded a bootable ISO file and want to do a quick preview of it – then try MobaLiveCD.
MobaLiveCD is a quite simple little utility that will provide an instant emulation of a system, thus you start MobaLiveCD and tell it to ‘boot’ the ISO file of your choice and BAM without any fuss you will see the menu of this CD/DVD. Really cool. Ok, one minor issue with this is that the speed of the thing is not great, for starting small menu driven cd’s/dvd’s it’s great but for starting a Linux live cd it is hopeless – so I guess it’s more a tool to quickly see what’s on a cd/dvd than a virtual pc kind of thing – but hey it is free.
