WebWork Live CD available
Robert Molzon from the University of Kentucky has created and made available for download a WebWork Live CD.

The live cd is based on Knoppix 4.0. This CD will allow you to turn any x86 computer into a webwork server in a matter of minutes. It can be used as a demo, as a backup, or even as your main server. Since Apache runs in memory after starting, you should see very little if any slowdown in performance. For more information go to

The Live_CD page contains information on setup and download.

I have used this Live CD to turn a laptop into a full WeBWorK server for use in demonstrations. It is truely impressive that this can be done in a few minutes without installing any additional software.
