   The 4 CD Slackware set comes with a "live disk" used mostly as a rescue
disk, that boots up in LINUX, not the X system.
   I would think if you are trying to use this all the time you would burn
your own custom CD of a minimal LINUX installation.
   I like to hear why anyone would boot using this system often.
