    Looking for a good Linux OS on Thinkpad 600e?


    Hi,

    Longe time browers first time poster! As above really, I've been using DSL (Damb small Linux) for about a year since Windows 2000 packed up and had to format. this is a back up computer I really just used for web browsing. I like the quick set up and ease of DSL but just want a change to a more stable OS.

    Here is a older Post from Zenwalks Forum back when Zenwalk was 4.0. Now it's at 5.2 and the kernel is 2.6.25.4 which probably has the module for 600E soundcard by now.

    www.zenwalk.org - Ever tried zen computing?
    I run it and its pretty quick and full featured.

    Zenwalk seems to be nice distro, but i think it wont be lighter like DSL.
    You can simply go Puppy

    Well its not too different from DSL, but you can use some good Puppets for better features+performance.

    I run Puppy Dingo also b2wild. I just didn't know for sure if He would be able to handle running as a root user. Zenwalk sets up a root and a user account during install. in fact, they have a nice tutorial for installing in the wiki here

    Fresh install ZW - Zenwalk Wiki
