Installing new MSI board I discovered that it comes with bootable CD that load so called Winki OS (based on SYSLinux AFAIK).
Did anyone some experience with capabilities of that OS ? How versatile is it? For example, can it see HDD? NTFS partitions? FAT partitions? Can for example Linux BOINC be installed there?
Or it's only "thin" client for web browsing? At least it has Skype too...

My experience with "live" bootable OSs is that you cannot install anything on it unless you're using a thumbdrive that has been configured with Casper to allow saving changes.

Now if you wanted to put that bootable distro on a USB stick and set it up with Casper using UNetbootin or another Live USB creator, you sure could do what you wish with it.

Edit] And to see ntfs partitions or other HDDs should be no problem from a terminal within the OS (all linux distros are very similar underneath the GUI), or there may even be a GUI option.
