They probably took the page down. Download the ISO from here:
After a (very) quick look, it doesn’t seem to have anything much to recommend it over Knoppix, unless you pay for the boxed version, and even then it definitely doesn’t look as good…
a possible end to the free downloabled .iso’s??
Knoppix, and now this are really a good idea. Sure, it’s nothing revolutionary, but it’s a thing usable by normal people, and it makes a nice present for december 25th
As far as I’ve read, the difference between the two are :
– you can use a usb key (nice;-) to store your data (/home)
like knoppix, but also your config files. So if you for example modify the config of your printer, it will very easily be able next time.
– people are not forced to use their usb key in ext2 (in the last knoppix, we have a red message before X is started if we want to start with a vfat key. This is not very user-friendly since ~95% use vfat to be able to use their key with windows)
– Very versatile : you have 1.5 Go of software (all the usual discovery edition), but you can also eject the CD, and watch a divx with totem.
– support for 5 different languages right at the start.
– more user friendly to configure the system than knoppix if you have something exotic to do (for example : getting your speedtouch USB adsl modem to work out of the box with the dns of your fai)
So, Knoppix or MandrakeMove ?
For me, it will be probably be both.

I fail to see why you think so.
The link works for me now.
no, it’s a completely separate thing. someone on the cooker list built an unofficial one, and I guess mdksoft saw how easy it was to do and figured it might make them a little cash on the side. it’s not intended to replace the main product at all, even the freely downloadable main product.
What website was selling Mdk9.1 on a USB key a while back? I think it used a mini Mdk system for install/repair purposes. I was trying to find the site, but forgot where I saw it…
