SuperGamer Live DVD

[ Thanks to Jim Lynch for this link. ]

"I initially tried, just for the heck of it to install SuperGamer using VMWare and VirtualBox. Please note that I do not recommend that you try to run any gaming distribution via virtualization as virtualization always slows down the games and ruins the experience for the most part. I just wanted to try it to see how well it would or wouldn’t work.

"My installs in VMWare and VirtualBox didn’t get anywhere and I realized that I needed to burn it to a DVD and then boot right into it. I wasn’t sure if my iMac could burn a dual layer DVD (never needed to use one before) and I was pleasantly surprised to find that it could. So off I went to Walmart and…$20 later…I came home with a box of dual layer DVDs.

"I burned my DVD and then popped it into my iMac and rebooted. I hit the alt key (option on a Mac keyboard but I use a Microsoft ergonomic keyboard so hence the alt key) and then picked the DVD option. I wasn’t sure how well SuperGamer would work with an iMac. Well I was pleasantly surprised, to say the least."
