from pfc: "UNetbootin allows you to create bootable operating systems to a USB drive without burning a CD."

from the website: "UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu, Fedora, and other Linux distributions without burning a CD."

The first sentence is unclear if one could install one or two operating systems on a single USB stick, which is untrue if I remember correctly.

abc: thanks for the response -- you're right that it doesn't allow for installation of multiple distributions as some of these tools do and I've modifed the entry. However, I didn't take directly from their website because this program will also work with non-Linux ISOs.

The registry key can be deleted, and is not recreated on subsequent launches. Alternatively, you can prevent it being created in the first place: before first launch, create a new text file in the Portable Settings folder called audacity.cfg, containing the single line: "NewPrefsInitialized=1" (without quotes).

This makes the program stealth. The only files it writes to the User folder are in %TEMP%. (And even this can be changed in the settings.)

Link for download isn't available. Could you make a correction ?
best regards

Guido76: I've tested three times from two different locations and it's working fine for me.

freakazoid-download link works and have seen this on other sites,same version says lite-asking the author is hard on sourceforge.

Ruby on 2012-10-23 06:36

@rodger123, early on, MPlayerWW was available as a 'Lite' and also a 'Full' version; the full version/pkg contained a slew of extra codecs, tools, etc...

If you follow the 'Download' link provided here and scroll down that page to 'OldVersions' and on that page scroll down to the bottom, you'll find the mplayer_full/mplayer_lite links.

Anyone know how to install the "Mplayer extra package" listed above?
Thanks
