Oh yeah, here's a quick link for Fedora's live-cd how-to


I also noticed at the bottom there's an archive of a Fedora "classroom"
where someone hosted a class in IRC to teach the same thing.

Wondering if anyone would be interested in starting some kind of classes
via IRC here?  I know some of you are already out there teaching, but I'm
still pretty remote where I am, and would love to learn and share in that
kind of setting.  Probably a subject for a different thread.
