It probably would, since you are running the whole operating system from that single CD. You could always try it though, i don't think there is any harm in it.

haha, If you take out the disc it will either lock it and not let you take it out or it will mess up, the entire OS is running off that disc...you cannot take it out!

Kind of like pulling out your hard drive when running Windows!

I run Linux Mepis off an external Hard drive that way I don't have the problem with Cd's or DVD's
