I have a new 20" 2.66GHz iMac with 4 GB of RAM. I have downloaded Ubunto 8.10 and burnt the CD. Can I boot from the CD? I have only one or two Windows programs I want to run, specifically IL2 1946 and Sony Vegas 6.0d. I know from other forums the IL2 will run on Linux with WINE. I have all the Windows software installed on the external drive I used as a back-up on the PC. The IL2 will open on a PC from this external drive, no problem. So, if I could get it to run under Linux by booting from the CD, I would have a "perfect" solution. I suspect that installing WINE on the CD after the fact might be a problem, but I could do the entire thing again on a USB drive no problem. Thanks or any ideas.
