I have been looking at Damn small linux, and was wondering, if i used this would it remove windows files? or would it just boot from the pen drive, and leave without a trace when it was removed, or would it disturb my windows files? Thing is, i like the idea of booting an entire os and my files from my usb stick
it doesnt touch the hard drive at all.
These live cd’s are great if you have a problem with booting with windows as they boot from the dvdrom drive or pen drive instead. thus helping you diagnose the problem and rescue files.
