To tell you the truth I can't really remember how I eventually got here.  All I remember is that I was at work and I was doing what I do best there: nothing (I get to do that a lot cause I work for a College).  Anyway, that was a good day.

I found DSL by word of mouth. An associate who monitors Freshmeat posted something about it in a thread on a private server that I inhabit. This would have been DSL 0.4 or thereabouts. Didn't do much with it other than run as liveCD till version 0.73.

I discovered it at 4.(something) when I was looking for small liveCDs.  I wanted something I could install in under a gig.
