I've grown up with computers around me my whole life. I started programming when I was a kid, and stuck with it ever since. I came across Linux around 1999 and have enjoyed working with it ever since.

For a job, I get to write software that runs on embedded Linux devices. I do everything from working on low-level drivers to writing shell scripts and even web apps.

Thanks! The pppd was a great idea - I set up xinetd to launch pppd on the server. Now I can even support multiple clients.

I would expect Live USB Creator to be able use any bootable ISO, but I don't know for sure. UNetbootin definitely will.
