I think I am using the Limey Linux for i686.
I am trying to remember if I used 'dd' or 'gunzip -c.....' to install
the image to the IDE flash drive. I remember having some trouble first
installing it, but decided to try a couple different routes as
previously I had to do the same thing.
I am not sure why I had to do that, but I figured there are more than
one to do something.
