Floppy-based distro search
i know you guys frown upon and lock "wich distro" threads but read first.
ok ive seen all the distro for old hardware lists but i want to know witch one can boot in floppies and download the rest of the stuff from a server.plus run in 24mb of ram with a window manager.
please dont lock this plz help

Well distrowatch myfriend
But also I think you should checkout Debian net install. (or the even smaller one)
I dont think it fits on a Floppy but still.
As WindowsManager (if you really need one)
id go for Open/Fluxbox or xfce(witch it still big)
