[ms4w-users] New User... Question about running ms4w on CD

Hola Ruairi,

I've not tried it with MapServer, but I'd hazard a guess that it won't work
- GeoServer doesn't (not that that proves anything).

I suspect Apache for one will get upset if it can't write its logs!

How about using pen drives or external hard drives?
