comment Can't play HD videos on PC
Increasing the cache size (somewhere in the player's settings) could help, but well the hardware part clearly isn't the best for playing HD files.

comment Installing grub on a usb flash drive
Well, try to do this by hand with sudo grub etc., cause the use case (USB flash drive) is not really typical for grub. And in menu.lst try to use (hd0,0).

comment How to make a searchable PDF document from a scan AND a source Word document?
I mean - I have the source DOC file. Then, I printed it. Then, I made some notes by hand on the sheet with the printed document. Then - I scanned it. What I want - is making a PDF with the scanned images, but at the same time the text on this image should be selectable and searchable. Like the "OCR" feature of the Acrobat, but without doing actual OCR - cause I have the oiginal source text - and with an freeware and portable software.

comment How to make a searchable PDF document from a scan AND a source Word document?
This is not exactly what I wanted. Sure, I can transform a plain DOC in PDF, this is not a problem at all. But I need to add a "selection layer" or something like this to an existing PDF document (or just the images of this document), so the scanned document gets the ability of being selected and searched. It seems that Acrobat is making such a layer when we use it's "OCR Recognition" feature - but I don't need OCR - I already have the original text. And I can't use Acrobat because of some restrictions. I need a freeware and portable software.
