Take a look at SLAX Linux, Boyd or anyone, it's an excellent example of
a mini Linux and installable as well from a 3" cd disc! One of the
fastest live CDs I think I have ever used and from what I can tell
kicks Knoppix's butt for most everything. It's built for testing,
repairing and general usage while on the road.

It's another good Slackware derivative, just like SuSE, but the
developer put a lot of new things into it (2.6.16 kernel). I've played
with it all weekend and ended up installing it on a test machine.
Shown it around a bit too. It's nice to see the "wow" look on regular
windows user's faces when it starts so fast from the cd.

It may give everyone a clue on making a SuSE mini, micro or dvd
installable and a better Live CD as well.
