If you have the time, patience and skill, please post a how-to for windows users, on how to create a bootable linux distro (any one) bootable from a CD
Bit coins or no Bit coins, this would be helpful

Ive created the guide to install Mint Linux in a USB drive and Bitcoin-QT as a client in the following post: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=170756.0

Bitcoin is the perfect crytpo-comodity-money, now we need a crypto-currency. Go.

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?

Back Bump!

Hi

Perhaps my question has already been asked, but cant go through 100+ pages.

I have a Mac with Parallels installed on it.

Instead of using a live CD, can i use Ubuntu on my parallels instead.

I can configure in a way that the Virtual machine is isolated from my hard disk.

Thanks.

Are paper wallets secure enough?

Depends on how securely you store them. I keep mine in a fire-proof and water-proof safe.

Tips are always welcome: 17Z63hLi2ox4fCMhDqVJrLTJiXVcBMJpMo

If you figure out how to do this let me know please!
I have a Mac as well sadly most of the tutorials here are all for computers running Windows or Linux -.-
I have OS X Lion installed but I have the Virtualbox app
Someone told me that it's best if I create a bootable OS because even if I use Virtualbox malware can still have access to all my info since the Virtualmachine is saved on my computers hard drive.

I keep my wallet on a truecrypt partition protected by a ~30 character password.  I also make backups whenever I use it, and save those on both a USB Drive, and a USB Thumbdrive.  (not dilligently though, I think I need to rethink my backup strategy).
