    it was not bcoz of the files system. live cd's are always slower than the installed version and can hang. are u running a low end computer.

    romeo did u try running live cd on windows. It is an Operating System on it's own. You need to reboot the computer with cd in the drive and cd drive as first boot device. Ubuntu will load and run from the cd.
    If you want to run linux apps on windows try cygwin. But, it's better to run them under linux only.

    It has nothing to do with your filesystem. It is your RAM. Recommended RAM for KDE and GNOME is 256 MB in a operating system installed on your hard disk.
    A live cd works from temporary memory so the contents of live cd are stored into your memory too. So with a RAM of 128 MB you will never be able to use KDE and GNOME based live cd.
    Here's some info on live cd's http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Live_cd
    Try using a live cd like Puppy LInux for a usable performance. It won't give you a fast running system with such a less RAM but will sure be more usable.
    If you don't believe me delete your NTFS drive and then run the cd too. I can bet you will have no performance gain with those specifications. A live cd does not make any use of hard disk unless you make it use the hard drive.
