You can chainload freeldr . You only need freeldr.sys and a working freeldr.ini . Then put something like this in your menu.lst : :ugeek:

title=ReactOS
root (hd0,7)
kernel /freeldr.sys DefaultOS=ReactOS TimeOut=1

Err, yes?! But not if you copy it on HDD. We have a bootcd for that!

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

This depends on hardware and the ReactOS Live-CD revision You use.

If You only want to taste: use ReactOS "Preloaded with QEMU".

If You want to test on real hardware: first use a separate PC and don't endager Your working LINUX or WINDOWS installation.
There are several "traps" that might chrash Your "everyday-working-PC".

ReactOS is ALPHA and does not work on every hardware constellation.
