Pyro Live CD: Getting Started

This is a set of instructions for running Pyro off of the Live CD.

  1. Place the CD-ROM disk in your Intel-compatible PC and make sure that you can boot from the CD-ROM drive. You might have to press F12 on bootup to select your CD-ROM drive, or change a setting in your BIOS. This Live CD should work on most modern laptops and desktop PCs.

  2. The disk will not not touch your hard drive, so you need not worry about it altering your computer or programs.

  3. Reboot your computer. You will see an initial startup screen. Press ENTER.

  4. After booting, click on the picture of the monitor on the panel at the bottom of the screen. This will start the program "konsole" which is a terminal, or console.

  5. In the terminal window, type pyrobot and press ENTER. The main Pyro window should appear on the screen.

  6. To try Pyro out once it is running:
