You want to run Vista on a DVD?
Do you want read write capability? I don't think DVD (even DVDRAM or DVDRW) would be your solution. Vista so far is exclusively NTFS for 32bit systems and based on that, you still need third party software to get Vista to write to DVD. By default Vista will only read write via FAT32. Not a solution.
The bios's in my IBM's will allow you to boot off of a flashcard. I personally witnessed an XP Pro OS (using litePC) system running off of a 4gig CF card, so I know you can do it.
No. To answer your question, there is no cheap way out. Partitioning is really the best way- or pickup a cheap 40gig drive off of Ebay and use it to play.
Anybody know where John Titors's '66 Vette is (or was, or will be)?
