Hi,
 There is no problem in installing antiX but from where to buy its CD in India? The website (http://www.rainbowcomputech.com/) 
from where I am regularly buying CD/DVD of linux distribution, does not have this distribution in its stock. I will contact that 
website if they can download and then send it to me on a CD via courier. Alternatively you people can suggest me a website from 
where I can purchase the CD of antiX linux in India. Please note that I don't have credit card and so the website must accept the 
payment through NetBanking facility.

Best Regards ...
Pankaj Kumar
