Nice!!!  Thanks very much, I'll definitely give it a try!

Also noticed the 'kiosk' talk.. That might be very suitable as well.
Is LiveKiosk currently the best thing if you just want to run Firefox
on a public PC ?

Cool.. I already read the message with the request for a Live-CD.. I
know it's a lot of work putting that together in a reliable way, but..
any ideas on priority or when this may become a reality? Especially
for a 'lite' version on a public computer a live CD sounds perfect:
Absolutely no way people can mess it up. :) And very low risk; no need
to wipe everything clean, and people can use it for a while before
perhaps moving to a full install.

But I will give the current version a try.. I have another computer
somehwere that would be just perfect for it.
