If you want X, without the horrors of configuring it, get DSL. Get it and don't look back!

For computers that don't have the ram to handle a livecd, I'd go with Slackware.  If you can't handle a ramdisk, odds are you aren't configuring X, anyway!

I horribly botched the X configuration on a Slackware install, yesterday.  Can you tell?  Fortunately, DSL (which, it turns out, has everything I needed) came to the rescue!

Coming soon, to a server near you...

I tried Redhat 9, but it would not install. Probably due to my overclocking, but I'm not
sure, RHL9 won't say.
For a good workout, I do SuSE 2.2
I'll never go through installing Debian 2.2 again, I just copy a good working setup over
to a new box with DriveCopy.:D
