Running Linux from a live CD or DVD can be a nice feature in certain
circumstances but if you are planning to use Linux regularly, I would
suggest that you bite the bullet and install it on your computer using
an official Debian CD or DVD or even something like Ubuntu or one of
the other Debian flavours.
I has been a long time since I have been actively reading
newsgroups. Long ago I have used tin and gnus to do that. I would not
recoommend gnus for newbies. It is not the easiest reader to set up
but it is very powerful.
