I finally got a copy of the Live CD which came from http://sharon.esrac.ele.tue.nl/pub/linux/ham/pskmail/ I couldn't get the ones on the other mirror servers to work.

This is great. I now need to run it on this PC and fix the CD drive on the another PC I have, a Dell GX-150, and run it on that CD.

I can't wait until I can get my computer connected to my RigBlaster and get on-the-air at least with Fldigi.

FLdigi seems so simple to run and I think when I spend more time on PSKMail, it will also be nice.

Thanks to Rein and all those who helped him on PSKMail and to Dave and his "helpers" on Fldigi...this is super software.

Is there room to put the OpenOffice word processor on the Live CD and an OpenSource spreadsheet?

Thanks & 73,


Hi Walt,

I just put openoffice on the cd. The only problem is that the cd will
now have to be a dvd as the resulting iso is 1 GB. Have you looked at
gnumeric and abiword ? koffice is not so big either.
I will remove openoffice, its just too big.

I've used gnumeric and Kspread and both are Ok.

I used Abiword when it first came out but not in a couple of years. I have also used Kword and it to is Ok. I guess this is part of KOffice.
