Install MCNLive to a USB Thumb Drive using the CD

Create a MCNLive Flash Drive using the Live CD. MCNLive is a live CD based purely on Mandriva Linux and was designed for use with most common desktop and notebook computers. Like Mandriva, MCNLive comes with almost every essential tool including networking utilities, internet tools, multimedia software, graphical tools and office applications. Just about everything the average Linux computer user might need can be found in MCNLive. Another great feature is the included easy to use graphical installer that allows a user to install MCNLive to a USB device. There is even an installer to install to an internal hard disk.
