This is the droid you are looking for.  Dsl-n offers more out of the box but is five years older.

The last STABLE release is "dsl-4.4.10.iso" in the "current" directory. The official download site is at ibiblio (http://distro.ibiblio.org/damnsmall/).

The release candidates for 4.4.11 don't change that much though, and I don't think there have been any significant problems found with RC2.

DSL-N was designed to include and support more current software at the price of being bigger than 50MB and less compatible with old '90s era computers. However development ceased before DSL, so in some respects it is less up to date.
