Ok, I'll burn 10 Freesmug and 5 Kubuntu PPC Live discs.
Unfortunately freesmug does not appear to have a live disc on it.
Also note that the OpenCD has an older version of Ubuntu. Check that you
have OpenCD 3.1, 3.0 has 2 versions old of Ubuntu.
Speaking of which, that's the problem with the Official Ubuntu Discs we
have they are Hoary 4.10, 2 years old version at this point, 6.06 the
latest is 3 versions newer.
As for literature, if someone sends me the files they want printed I
have a high speed duplex laser and can run off some stuff (I've got a
box of 30% recycled paper and need an excuse to use it.)
We should probably have a page on each of the discs we give out so
people know whats on them.
Hmm, I've run knoppix 5 on my laptop but never tried the wifi - I always
use it for fixing things never just using the machine. I'll test it out,
and compare to the latest Kubuntu Live.
Another cool disc I've been playing with is Helix. Maybe you want a few
copies of that. It's a forensic/data recovery disc with a windows
executable and a custom knoppix based live CD all about security, file
recovery etc. It's supposed to be good for cleaning a windows machine
while it's being infected or attacked.
