    You'll need at least 512MB of RAM and i686 (Pentium III with PAE
    support) CPU to boot it. There are 32bit and 64bit kernels.

    If you want to run it in VirtualBOX (enable PAE) or VMWare, increase
    the Base Memory to 1024. With QEMU using KVM, pass 'noexec=off' to
    the kernel.

    Please inform me if RIP is working or not!
    Any suggestions are appreciated!

    Use this Windows USB installer to put RIP on a USB drive.
    Choose "RIP Linux" from its menu, then browse to where
    RIPLinuX-13.7.iso is on your hard drive etc. It should
    work with any ISO below, but your USB flash drive should
    be at least 256MB and FAT16 or FAT32 formatted.

    Other methods for putting RIP on a USB flash drive are
    described in the USB readme below.

    Verify the ISO under Linux or Windows.
    md5sum -c RIPLinuX-13.7.md5 "It should say OK!"

    Read the USB readme for instructions on how to install RIP
    on a USB flash drive.

    Read the mkextlin readme for instructions on how to install
    the Linux system on a USB flash drive partition. You can
    then boot and use it the same as if it was installed to a
    Linux Ext2/3/4 or Btrfs formatted partition on a hard drive.
