Creating an MDRK spin / Mozilla Developer Resource Kit
The Mozilla Developer Resource Kit is a set of tools, code, and documentation intended to make it easy for new Mozilla developers to get up to speed. Package the MDRK components (including the software tools, a Moz source tree, and documentation) as RPM packages and then create a Fedora "spin" (Live + Installable DVD) of these packages.
Edit the spin image (from Revisor/Live CD Tools) so that, in addition to being a bootable/installable disc, the image can be run in a VM under Windows/Mac OSX. The disc image must be edited to include Windows/Mac OSX versions of the tools, so that if the disc is inserted into a running Windows or Mac OSX system, the appropriate version can be installed.

Here's the ISO image for MDRK (Mozilla Developers Resource Kit).
Click the above link to download it.
Currently you will have to tweak it a little bit to get it to work. By the time I work
to fix it, you can still use it.
Once you download the ISO image and burn a copy for yourself, open a terminal and issue the following command as root:
setsebool -P httpd_enable_cgi=1 to enable the bool and the DXR will work fine
