It would be a good idea to bundle an installation packet in the future to the liveCD, like so many Linux Distros do.

The LiveCD, right now anyway, may change in the future, only lets you test ReactOS and see if it will work with your computer. I have to admit, an installer would be nice.

Installable livecd was on TODO list around 2005 and still not ready.
You still need programs to repartition,defrag and chkdsk your HDD on livecd.

Also livecd has problems with partition recognition,but install too.
I have a fat32 and a linux swap on disk and ReactOS usetup tells something very wrong
It tells 1 FAT and a huge amount of unpartitioned space and in explorer I see 2 HDD Icons second with wrong size reported
,if I change CD then the second icon changes to a CD.

one possible way to do this would to extract the LiveCD's contents onto a seperate partition and then use the grub bootloader to load it....don't ask me how, i did it once and wasn't really sure how i pulled it off...lol
