Hi all,

A hassle free no installation Live CD is available for download. It is based 
on Kanotix which seems to be a Linux which runs off this very CD with no 
installation necessary. It does not change anything on your Computer. 

Given you have a PC which can boot from CD all you have to do is download the 
CD. Then use a program like k3b or xcdroast or a Windows program to burn the 
so called iso image - the file you download. Whatever burn program you use 
don't burn the downloaded file as a file but rather find the option where it 
lets you burn CD images. Every CD burning app has this option I believe.

Then put the CD in the CD-ROM drive and let your PC start from it. It will 
boot into a graphical environment (KDE). It will present you with a desktop 
icon which lets you start GNUmed. You can use this CD to connect to the 
public database over the internet *or* you can use a local database. Yes you 
are right. GNUmed server can be started from this very CD as well.

So all you need is this CD to look at version 0.1 of GNUmed. If you are 
presented with a German user interface and get lost let me know. The English 
version is on there as well but the CD is premade to launch the German 
version of GNUmed.

Try to do this with Windows. Try again. This CD has been made by a commercial 
vendor which ships a Linux version of his commercial (German only) practice 
management app on this CD as well. So when you read APW or APWLinux this is 
the name of the commercial app. Those guys are not ready to open their source 
nor do they have an English interface (German only) but they produced this CD 
for us plus host the file to download  

Don't say we don't make it easy to test and use GNUmed.
