I was telling a friend that I found a good use for my spare PI 166 I have in my bedroom, remote desktop to my main pc (when i get it...). He suggested I stick a small linux distro on it and use rdesktop. He told me where to find DSL, I couldnt be bothered to download it, I ordered the business card cd (cool looking!), tested it on my laptop, liked it, tried to install it on here, forgot to make seperate partition for it, lost everything on the laptop, and im here on DSL as we speak! Next step is to hunt out my wireless card so I don't need to run my external modem.

I really hope you aren't still running 0.4.x. :D

They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

Unleash the power of the TILDE~~~

:p  I was looking for a faster dl mirror for knoppix ( I am not sure where I found Knoppix but it will come to me later) and stumbled across DSL and was interested in something small in a working os.
I am impressed with the ability of it but most of the puters that I am curently have m$ installed But I am working on that   :cool:

You guys might get a kick out of this...

At one point, I had gotten the idea into my head to create an "e-ring", for my significant other (cd = ring-shaped).  It would be a bootable cd, which would bring up a web browser with web pages about cool places we had been, etc.

Needless to say, I needed something to use as a starting point.  So, I started looking online for a small live-cd to base it on.  Thus, I found DSL.  (It was in the 0.3.x stage.)

Sadly, the project fell by the wayside, but since I'm typing this from an OmniTech running DS, I think it's safe to say that DSL has kept my interest.  Given that I'm also currently running a webserver on DSL... :-)

Coming soon, to a server near you...
