    ...or maybe because it is based on Slackware:

    But yes, Zenwalk is based on Debian.
    Just a typo!! I've fixed it now!

    Minislack is based on Slackware.

    Ahh, Zenwalk=Minislack, get used to it!

    Also, I now suggest Puppy Linux, you can actually install it to ANY Windows Partition with out partitioning, or the usual way. Puppy, is actually a LiveCD that if you have 128mb of ram or more, can load the entire lot into ram! It is easily installable to almost any media, uses FVWM 95 by default (but you can use JWM or download IceWM), and has an intresting package system called dotPup, very simple, intergrates with Rox very well. Once you get IceWM in there with the package you can find on the website, get busy making your new Linux OS, your own!

    Oh, there is even a Fluxbox package if anyone uses that anymore . This is right for you as this is not only the perfect newbie distro, it's easy to install, and it's great!

    Or, you could just use Lycoris if you are in the mood for something more...traditional. That one is KDE based, but I don't use it. At least it has a solitare game in the installer, if that's good in any way.
