I finally got round to booting my laptop with the FC^h7 Live DVD. The system has 1GB of RAM so I first tried to do a "load image into RAM (requires 1GB)". The system flailed about for a while continuously running out of memory (e.g., the initial Firefox with the Fedora welcome page never succeeded in starting). I finally hit the power button and rebooted. This time I chose "run from image" and things worked reasonably well. I'll need to make the fwcutter output available on some kind of removable media so I can try bcm43xx. Otherwise, things went well.

Given the above problem I'd suggest that the minimum RAM for loading the image be increased to more like 1.5GB or even 2GB.

If it doesn't run with 1 GB on RAM that should be filed as a bug report.

 Also, My system has
a 2GB swap partition that was ignored. This seems to be a shame since utilizing it would have prevented the out of memory problem. Maybe another choice is needed on the boot menu which says scan the existing hard drives for a Linux swap partition.

Another nice enhancement would be to provide a way to mount partitions that the provided kernel knows how to access (e.g., have a /old and allow the user to selectively mount such partitions under /old).

Please file enhancement request against livecd-tools in
