    nice, though do you really need the ADSK/PPP/PPPoE? And also dillo is a great small browser but it lacks features maybe dont even use it? Cause id just use lynx/links with FB and its better than dillo, just a FYI

    for the web server are you using apache, tom cat or somthing alot smaller than those? Also for a sql server Id suggest SQLITE for a smaller sql database if you want that.

    other than that, looking good

    I've been messing with DSL for a long time - Quite impressive, and easily updated to other packages that are more useful (firefox for example).

    Might also want to check out PuppyLinux & SLAX - Both are formidable, albeit bigger than DSL. My goal was to load the whole OS into RAM for in-car use, and all three are capable of this, as well as boot from usb key.


    Check em out!


    Now to beat a dead horse: PLEASE OH PLEASE GET IGUIDANCE TO WORK ON LINUX!

    I'm sure people are going to start asking about linux distributions to use, so I thought maybe people could use this link:
