Well, I've tried it out and it works very well. She boots right up to gparted within Fluxbox after asking basic questions about keyboard, video card/drivers etc. I was alerted to the fact that it is Slackware based when the first question "box" came up. They look the same as when doing a Slackware installation or running pkgtool. The kernel version is 2.6.16. Gparted itself rivals Partition Magic in simplicity and intuitiveness. If you are forever creating, resizing and formating partitions as I am, you'll want a mini CD of Gparted in your toolbox to handle all the above.

This will make a great tool that's very easy to use for those new to partitioning. I'll certainly be recommending it often. The small iso file size is a definite plus, and it's nice to see that it comes with aterm and leafpad built right into it.oz
