I'm trying to boot this BAMT distro.

It's funny 'cause I made a USB key with exactly the same command they provided on their download page:

Code:
dd if=/path/to/bamt.img of=/dev/yourUSBkey

When I try to boot I get this error:

Code:
Missing operating system.
Missing operating system.

Broadcom UNDI PXE-2.1 v11.0.9
Copyright (c) 2000-2008 Broadcom corporation

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM

Operating system not found.

So am I doing something wrong or is my computer some kind of exception!?!?!?Huh
And why don't they make a standard iso file (like all other Linux distros), so it can be done with unetbootin or something?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

solved...

I used the dd command wrong. You have to specify USB device (like sdb), not partition (sdb1)...
