Only problem is that I don't use Debian and I know nothing about it's
package manager.  When I get another drive, I'll probably put debian on
it, but no diskspace for that right now...

I was looking through sunsite the other day, and found a distribution
called tinyX - A REALLY tiny X windows based distribution, small enough to
fit on a single 1.44Meg floppy!  I was thinking we could start with
something like it, because it's small and simple.  First thing we could do
is put everything in RPMS, upgrade some software, etc.  And write an
installer.  TTYL!
