Good site. I am studying Linux on-line on Basic Linux Training. We talk a lot about different distros including the tiny ones, and some of us are experimenting with 386 and even contemplating smaller PCs. So Smallinux seems a good idea. I seem to be getting a very slow download here, though. Maybe I need to come back another time. Thanks Bodvar

This should be very useful. Installed painlessly. I'd like to find a version like this for my old SPARCs. I just had a problem where a bootable floppy would have saved a good deal of aggravation. Hard to boot a diskless system when it's not talking to its server.

This was just the kickstart I needed to get my AST Research Laptop (486SL 25 MHz w/ 4MB RAM) running Linux. The laptop would lockup any time I tried to boot to anything other than OS/2 or DOS. OS/2 Warp was preinstalled. With SmallLinux I was able to wipe the 215 MB hard disk and create a 197MB Linux Native and 8MB Linux Swap partition without any trouble. Now I can finally install some decent software!

A few days ago I found a 486/4meg/no flopy drive computer in the garbage. (Hey, if it's beside a dumpster, its MINE.) I put a friends spare flopy in it, used Ma's computer to download and rawrite the images, and fired her up. Now I have my own mediocre, but linux none the less computer. Not only that, now I can take linux with me were ever I go! (If I turn off my new toy first, anyway.) Anyway, kickass job! I wish I were as good a coder as you!

Thanks. I don't have everything up and running yet, but small linux seems to be working for me to get linux on my old (formely useless) laptop. Not sure why mulinux and tomsrtbt didn't boot, but smalllinux seems fine. I am used to using all of the automated tools in the standard redhat distro, it is sort of fun to be installing linux bit by bit from floppies. :^)

I would like to that i think it is amazing what you are doing with this distribution. i used your linux distro as a base for installation of slackware 3.6 onto a 386 with 4 megs of ram and a 60 meg harddrive. (old ibm) I have been working towards this goal for over 3 days straight and yesterday i had a breakthrough when i found your distribution. I used the floppies to install and transfer over 15 megs of files back and forth from the server to the 386. I think what you have done is excellent and i would like to say thank you for the base for a whole operating system. email me and i'll give you an ip for the computer so that, if you want to, can log into the box and see what it's done..
