    Slax

    Recently I made some huge ass downloads and grabbed around 23 new OSs. One of them was SLAX which is why I'm doing this:

    I popped it in and it's a Live CD made from Slackware. The distro comes up with neat ascii stuff and then boots to a command line. I typed the startx command to look at it more in depth and I must say this is a nice distro for someone who needs a general purpose bootable Linux distro.

    The install to Hard Drive method is VERY easy. I'm attaching a screen shot to see the default look of it and the installer which you can use from Bash or the GUI. Anyone else here use this?

    Others I grabbed:

    FreeSBIE (Very nice too)

    WHAX

    Gnoppix

    Berry Linux

    Pocket Linux

    VLOS

    Ubuntu 5.10

    Simple MEPIS

    MEPIS Lite

    CentOS

    Vector Linux 5.1

    Novell Linux Desktop 9 SP2

    SLAX looks like a hoot! May have to give it a whirl.

    CentOS is "open" RedHat. I've used it a bunch of times. Very handy when you want to build a quicky appliance or single purpose server.

    Or when someone says they need to take a piss and go to lunch and don't come back?
