Very Important - Here is a copy of my Project Paper. It is in Adobe Acrobat PDF format and will later be published in hard copy. It describes my project - Linux vs. Windows, the methodology I used during the experiment, and my conclusions about using a LiveCD in a public access computer lab. I also have a copy of the final presentation I made to my Project Committee on May 4, 2006. Here is my Project Paper in Microsoft Word format.

Who is Rob Hiltbrand? What kind of graduate program is he enrolled in? How can I contact him about his project work?& Does he have a resume?
A LiveCD is an operating system stored on a bootable compact disc that can be run from the CD-ROM drive itself without installation of any files onto the computerís local hard drive. It does this by creating a RAMDISK (placing the operating system files into the random access memory - RAM). The system can be returned to its original state when the LiveCD is ejected and the computer rebooted.

In this section, I have specifics about the project, status reports, and details.
This is the project charter for my work. What is a Project Charter? Well, it isn't a Project Plan, but rather a high-level directive outlining the overall objectives of the project.
