Summary

Owner

Current status

Working demonstration built.

https://github.com/inkyfingers/SoaS_Loader

With thanks to Read the Docs SoaS Loader is available to preview on http://soas-loader.readthedocs.org

Detailed Description

The method involves `livecd-iso-to-disk` as this page.

Construction is copied from Help Activity, which uses Sphinx, http://sphinx-doc.org/.

A liveinst method is under consideration.

Pro, makes nice 4 or 8 GB sticks.

Con, instructions are more difficult to write for novices.

If the tutorial is to be available to all users, they should not easily be able to delete the host OS as could happen with anaconda.
Fairly detailed instructions are necessary to explain how to set up a satisfactory for children boot record.

Future versions

Might include a script which would probe the capacity of an inserted USB stick,and deliver the livecd-iso-to-disk command on confirmation by the user.

Might include liveinst instructions under the heading `How to install Sugar on an expired Windows XP machine`.

Benefit to Sugar

Allow new users to adopt Sugar more easily.
