    A lightweight multimedia-focussed linux distro


    Hi,

    I have an old PC that I want to use specifically as a media-center, to play CDs, DVDs, and Music/Video/Pictures stored on the disk drive.

    As it's an old PC and I want it to be able to run on demand, i'm after a light operating system with a fast boot time and media apps that integrate well.

    At the moment, i'm thinking a customized installation of Zenwalk would probably best suit my needs, but has anyone come across anything that they think would work better?

    Thanks for your time!

    Why don't you do a net install of debian and only install the packages you need?

    I would not hesitate a moment before downloading GeexBox.
