This version of linux runs from CD. It is pretty cool i am using it from past 1 week.
Actually i am not a unix guy, but very much interested in that.

I have been thinkin about installing in my hard drive. This sounds like a better idea.

BTW, how does it work. the kernel would be loaded in the main memory ok. how about the swap space and all?

What is the system requirements for this?

i have 256MB RAM it use the RAM for every thing.
if you have 1GB or even 512 it is good.
Since it reads the CD it takes some time, as i mentioned if u have more memory the whole program can run from the RAM and it will be very fast.
Overall it is pretty good.
i like it,
give a try.
