What's happening at Peninsula College?
One of the things I enjoy doing is teaching classes at the local community college. Take a look at some of the information that has been made available.
Boot Linux on to an external USB drive
Many students didn't want to install Linux at home to their main hard drive and risk ruining their windows. One option was to buy an external USB drive. If your computer doesn't have the capability to boot directly from a USB drive, then you will have to create a boot disk. The instructions and technical information is listed in the forum.
