#1
Troy Dawson and Connie Sieh released, only one week after announcing the availability of Scientific Linux 5.3, the Live CD/DVD version of their distribution. Scientific Linux 5.3 Live CD/DVD will run on both i386 and x86_64 processor architectures. Being a Live version, the system boots directly from the optical media it was written on, without touching the hard drive.
