If you are wondering if you can use the Parsix Live CD to boot up the Parsix you have installed on your HD, I believe the answer would be NO !
Seeing you have just recently installed Parisix, you may not have spent a lot of time in setting it up. I would just do a reinstall and install Parsix 3.0 or the new test release to the MBR and use Parsix's grub2 bootloader.....you won't be disappointed.
Then do some reading on grub2, there is a learning curve if you ever wish to update it. Send me a PM and I can provide you info that can help you learn grub2. Also search the Parsix forums, there are some threads here also that may help you.
I hope we can help you getting Parsix to work the way you want it to.
