:
In my [Kenneth's] efforts to find open source systems to create and manage content that I can share easily with others I've learned about two areas where I can freely access cms and desktop systems:

1. cPanel with Fantastico on http://bluehost.com and http://siteground.com - this is where I have several instances of moodle, drupal, phpwebsite, joomla and a few other.

2. http://livecdlist.com and http://distrowatch.com where I have come to find and utilize several liveCDs that extends my ability to work with systems running from CDs in a desktop, thin client and server situation.

My basic requirements in bootable liveCDs are: desktop, browser, and access to media. I download iso files, burn them to cds that on a regular bases I use and keep up-to-date with:

http://e-lane.org/pub - the dotlrn and several other OACS packages that I use

http://puppylinux.com - small size general purpose...updated most frequently

http://dynebolic.org - multi media production and streaming

http://mepis.org - best OS replacement and desktop

http://edubuntu.org - fast becoming the unifying core code that all the other debian users use.

thanks to Kenneth Wyrick for these sites

Furl [ http://www.furl.net/index.jsp ] your personal web file

Furl allows you to copy an article and store it on your computer electronically. It's virtue is, if you do a lot of research on the web, that you can store articles and refer back them on the computer, instead of having to print out large amounts of pages, usually half of which end up being discarded. Very handy for term papers, and professional writers who need to store articles for a short time--a day or a week, before deleting them. Very handy also for arranging footnotes and citations.
