Small preference here (when booting from CD media) for Damn Small Linux:
It's quite a livable system.  Of course, Flonix reportedly excels with
flash media.

Info should include known_hosts2, don't forget.

My bitsy 32MB flash drive is too small for Flonix, but still can boot a
Debian installation kernel, drivers, and installer RAMdisk, with the
base system fetchable onto target systems via http.  Hasn't been needed
yet, but it's nice to have.  http://d-i.pascal.at/

rick@linuxmafia.com       MuaHaHaHa!" but that would be rude. -- Jim Dennis
