Review: Mandrake Move Linux Live CD

This review includes a few screenshots of Mandrake Move.
Unlike Knoppix Mandrake Move didn't mount internal hard drives on the Desktop (it mounts Windows partitions in the /mnt/win_c/ or similar folders), but it did recognise and mount the external hard disk. This is indeed a clever solution it prevents users from inadvertently accessing the internal disks, while allowing them to hook up an external storage device. Just keep in mind that Mandrake Move can only read and write FAT32-formatted hard disks (it mounts NTFS disks in read-only mode). What would be great would be the ability to use an external storage device instead of a USB key to store settings and configuration files. Unfortunately our attempts to make Mandrake Move use the hard disk instead of the USB key were not successful.
