    Question Light Weight linux Distribution


    Hello world!
    I have been trying to find a linux distro that is very light weight (as in only a console) so I can use it on old machines. I don't necessarily want to install it, it's fine if it can only be used on a disk or on a USB drive.

    Thanks!

    OK, thanks for the link. I already knew about Finnix, however Finnix doesn't seem to be working on the computer I'm using. So now I have a new list here.

    Thanks!
