    OK you have tried Redhat,Mandrake,Slackware... then you have 3 good linux dists that may suit you.

    Suse,Debian or Gentoo.....And may i ask, why dont you like Redhat and Mandrake. I have used them booth with good results..if you dont like them im not sure you will like any other dist either..

    Custom installs on redhat are not bloated. When we were forced to use redhat at work, I could do a server install which only used 445MB which is hardly bloated.

    Very interesting, RH and mandrake are my favs, of course I will go for RH cause I just like it, Mandrake is my second alternative, but chinese support isn't good enough. and I just can't find any distro with such documentations around. and more importantly, I can actually get RHCE!
