Damn Small indeed

Linux

Over the last several weeks I have been cleaning out my computer room. While digging through paperwork I found a pen that someone had given to me. The pen contained a 64MB USB drive. I set the pen off to the side. "Great," I thought, "now I can try to put Linux on there."

I already knew about DSL (damn small linux). I checked online to see what the requirements were. The entire operating system can fit on a 50MB USB drive. "That's perfect," I thought. My research continued. I found myself at the pendrivelinux.com. It all looked very simple and very straight forward. After all it was only 6 easy steps.

I was eager to see how it ran and what was included in this version of Linux.
