That was a good read! I'll be installing linux on a usb drive and run all of my Bitcoin clients there. Thanks for the idea.

Good starting guide for the newcomers!

Is this same procedure possible for lite coin and other crypto-currency wallets?

Will this process work on a Mac OS X 64bit running Lion?
What about using a Virtual OS with VirtualBox? We can download and install the client on there and only be able to access it through the use of Virtual Box. Furthermore we could download and install TrueCrypt on the Virtual OS and encrypt and save the wallet on a usb drive. Or am I wrong.

Has anyone tried something similar to this?
I notice that most tutorials are for Windows or Linux users so I'd like to know if there's anyone that can help me secure my file on a Mac. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Virtual Box and a mounted truecrypt volume is not safe enough, because worms are able to collect your wallet when you are using it. Fully separated system provides better security.

Yeah I understand now. I see the big picture. But can Ubuntu be saved on a USB and booted on a Mac? If not, is there any way of doing something similar?

Does it make sense to install a bitcoin client (mac) on another user, that would only be opened when needed?
Thanks.

Hi dear people.

I read that post and wanted to try.

Downloaded Ubuntu and burned it on a RW DVD.

I started the computer new and didn't know if I have to install the Ubuntu system or try it from the DVD.
If I install the system, where will it be installed? On the DVD itself?

Thanks for your answer!
Neo

Yes. Especially with litecoin, many of the bitcoin tools are replicated, e.g. liteaddress.org in lieu of bitaddress.org.

Thanks Smiley
