Boot Land Newsletter

Weekly news from the land of Boot disks.      

Introduction

Hi everyone. This week you might notice the high number of topics discussed on the LiveXP and VistaPE projects. At the moment we are looking for volunteers to help testing winbuilder projects and you're invited to join up our talks if you like it.

Also related to this matter - MedEvil has been working on his NaughtyPE project which helps you create a boot disk with full multimedia support to playback music files and youtube if you wish. You can look it up here - http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=3866

Hope you have a fun week!
