I find that awesome, since I can run my system everywhere and with high speed, not having to work on a system running from a cd. I also don't have to change the installed system, after using linux, I just erase the dyne directory and leave. The other cool thing is the so called "nesting", where the system automatically recognizes a existent *.nst file that stores the users data and config files (/etc content for example) and loads it. Is there a way to do those things with a DebianLiveCD? If not, I really think that is something to be thought about, than we all know how liveCDs are much more useful than simple show-linux-to-your-friends systems.
Have you tried simply copying the contents of the CD somewheer and using
an alternative boot loader?
