The Phoenix Live CD has been upgraded to include more educational packages and a GUI Installer program. The total size after installation is now around 1.7 GB The GUI based installer makes the computer multiboot. On an AMD Athlon XP machine with SATA disk it took just 3 minutes to complete the installation process. The ISO image <http://www.iuac.res.in/%7Eelab/livecd_images/index.html>is available on the web site. I am looking for feedback. Those who are willing to go though the contents and try out the installation to hard disk may ask for a CD by post. (well. you must have a PC with all the data backed up somewhere)

with regards
