8.0.1 Basic Client goes Nomad!

More happiness with 8.0.1 this afternoon. At the request of one of our managers, I was asked if Nomad was supported. You remember Nomad, right? Notes on a stick? USB Stick that is.

Well, going back through the old blog time machine, (ie: the search function at the top of the website), I found the steps that I had linked to on Chris Whisonant's blog back in October of 2006. I am happy to report that those steps work without a problem for 8.0.1 Basic. I also added the Admin and Designer as per the instructions on Declan's blog, and those worked too.
I remember seeing somewhere that the Standard version will not work, but I can't say with 100% that it won't because I haven't tried it yet. If I get some time at the end of the week, I'll give it a shot.

Cool man! I need to load 8.0.1 on my stick.

Standard isn't supported yet.

Thanks for the info. Standard is still not supported as per the below technote from IBM:

Considering how slow the standard client is when loading, it will be even slower over the USB port. Therefore, it would not be very useful unless you want to wait 2 minutes for it to boot up each time

Thanks for the info, however there seems to be a lot of confusion. The Developerworks forum has threads that say it WILL work with 8.0.1, and others that say it won't be supported until the 'next version', whatever that is. I tried it today using the instructions from the 7.0.2 Release Notes, and it did NOT work. I'll check Chris' blog and see if that will do the trick.
