    Roky,
    Thanks for the URL. Checked it out, read bunches of forum posts.
    Wonderful thing, this Linux system, engineers can modify the core code,
    and still build on the same basic kernal that other distros utilize.

    I'd like to modify ... looking to do is,
    remove some packages normally included ... add some custom software, etc.

    Sounds like he is asking to bite off a wad !

    So IMHO, offering a very conservative suggestion:

    TinyCore is the skinniest,
    with very little in the way of applications built-in,
    thus it has a core of 10.3 Megabytes, and runs Live-CD very well.
    You use their apps-installer to add from a large repository,
    to build a nearly 'total custom' distro.

    Puppy 5.25 comes in second, with many more basic applications built-in,
    thus it has a core of 128 Megabytes, and runs Live-CD very well.
    You use their apps-installer to add from a large repository,
    to build a 'customized' distro.

    Ubuntu has been a money making desk-top distro for me.
    Does not do well from the Live-CD, just for 'testing' as they mention.

    Roky,
    Just my opinions, right ?
    On your lead, I downloaded Nimblex and will test the Live-CD soon.
    Thanks for the tips.

    Roky,
    Just my opinions, right
    Back when this came out in 2007. Tiny Core was in infancy or not around yet. I really don't know though.

    Puppy Wireless was pretty inadequate.

    Slitaz was wired interface mostly.

    NimbleX when I made the CD back in 2008 was the only one that gave me the option to load the needed drivers for wirelesson a live CD. I don't think Slax even did that back then. As far as I know. Back then. NimbleX had the only live cd generator where you could have a 200MB CD or a 700+ MB DVD.


    NimbleX was/don't know about now. a one man show like Absolute Linux. Woud run on old gear.
    KDE in it was the fastest in a live cd. I still have that old Live cd I made years ago. Back then. I was impressed. Posted the link mainly to show that Slax was not the only live CD generator around.

    NimbleX - The New Wave of Linux ! - NimbleX 2010 Beta is out!
