 - Move to kernel 2.6.22
 Note that as of 2007-08-24 some of the wireless NIC drivers will not compile with 2.6.22.
-- Run from USB in virtualized PC for computers that cannot reboot (CD has this functionality)
-Public computers may prevent rebooting or booting from removable media. Include QEMU for Windows in root and batch file that will start Incognito in virtual environment. Only works for Windows 2000/XP+ host. vvfat can be used for the disk but boot sector will not be available. QEMU can specify linux kernel and initrd directly, but then we don't get the menu choices, in which case we need the batch file to do so.
+- Fix virtual USB boot for read/write mode
+The CD or USB may be run in a virtual PC for computers that won't boot from removable media. USB must be run read-only due to bugs in QEMU (writable vvfat). When QEMU fixes this, we should use it.
 See http://www.h7.dion.ne.jp/~qemu-win/HowToFloppyCdrom-en.html
+- Provide menu choices in virtual PC use
+Options are fixed when running in a virtual PC. Read the syslinux.cfg file and allow the same options. This may be able to still use run.bat, depends on how good the Windows command interpreter is. We could definately do it with bash :)
 - Allow Tor to be bypassed
 Sometimes a direct connection to the Internet is desired. We need a way to bypass the iptables filter. Possibly another proxy process that does not go through Tor. There should be a clear indicator that we are not anonymous.
