MUST BE WRITTEN TO USB-STICK with "dd" or WinImageWriter32 or similar tools.
What it does:
It is based on KNOPPIX and boots into FS-UAE running AROS VISION 68k distribution done by Olaf Schönweiß.
It works with ATI, Nvidia and Intel GPU's.
The slowest system i had for testing was a 1.5GHZ Celeron with Intel915 Chipsset. It worked good for ECS and AGA games.
Network is working out of the box if "wired". Wifi has to be edited from Preferences Menu in Linux. Quit FS-UAE with F12.
For powering of you just need to press your "power button". A requester will appear. PLEASE DON'T POWER OFF YOUR COMPUTER BEFORE LINUX DOES THE SHUTDOWN! IT WILL POWER YOUR SYSTEM OFF. WRITING TO USB IS SUPPORTED.
