Hi all,
i am planing to set wifi hotspot,
the number of max clients at a time will  be around 30-40 clients
users should buy credits , and register to be able to log in,
i must have an administrative control panel.
now i am downloading zoneCD, and i belive it is what i need and more,
but i hate the idea that it runs from CD, and can't be installed and configured on the hard drive,
plz give any recommendations and advices for me to do , or know about before starting.
thanks in advance

    Hi Da_Ch0sen,

    If running from the CD bugs you that much, why not emulate a CD-ROM drive?

    i thought about emualting the cd, i use magicISO, its great
    but since it should be booted from the CD i don't know if it works, but i will give it a try.
    but if it was you to implement a hotspot, what would be your recommendation or plan.

    If all you needed was a simple hotspot, I would just use ZoneCD as intended.
