Question
How do I install TAILS on a CD, Iím running Linux Mint 17.1?

Answer
I don't know what TAILS is; not bny that name anyway.  Installing anything in Mint jus accomplished by using apt-get, Aptitute of the GUI-interfaced Software Manager that's part of Mint.  There's a Package Manager and a Software Manager which have a GUI. I use "apt-cache search <package_name> to find packages.  (It can take a partial name). I use apt-get install dist-upgrade | grep securit to get the names of security packages then I run apt-get install <pkg_names> where pkg_names are those returned by the previous command to maintain MINT security patches.

Hoping this was useful.
