Probably many people missed what this CD really is:  It's a bootable
Linux OS with lots of ham applications on it, including Xastir.  If
your computer can boot directly from CD (on most computers nowadays
it's just a matter of setting your BIOS to allow such booting) then
you can reboot your box into Linux without touching your hard drive
at all, just to play with Linux or the ham applications.  It's a
wonderful way to play without fear of hurting anything.

Knoppix, Morphix, Harv's Hamshack Hack CD, all of these are examples
of such boot-and-run Linux CD's.  There are many more examples.  Try
