Re: [school-discuss] linux distributions for low resource computers

I looked into using both DSL and Puppy (distros some of the list members 
just recommended), but with only 64 MB RAM and both distributions listing 
minimum requirements needing more, it just isn't a solution for that 
particular computer.  As I mentioned, both DeLi Linux and Absolute Linux 
work on a machine with less than 64 MB.  

Would be interested to hear if those using smaller distributions are finding 
all the applications they need with the distributions or adding applications 
themselves.  If you're adding applications, which ones are most helpful and 
most responsive for low resource systems?  Is there a method of sharing the 
added applications with others if you go to the effort of compiling and 
building a program yourself?
