[AG-TECH] Ag2.0 Install on Debian Linux - possibly also on KNOPPIX?

I'd be interested in any issues you might have. We are thinking of 
rolling a KNOPPIX livecd with the AGGrid software installed. It might be 
a good way for somebody to try out the grid without having to install it 
(we'll see!). Since Knoppix is based off of debian I'd imagine we will 
have similar issues.

I'll be following your thread with interest, I'll post if we run into 
any strangeness.

Has anybody else out there thought creating a livecd linux AG PIG?
