    Linux on a floppy?


    Hi, I'm new here, I guess, and sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this. I took a look and though this would be the most preferable place.

    So. To business.

    I have a laptop. An old...old...very old laptop.

    I also have Windows installed on it from a very...very long time ago. (So long ago, in fact, that I've forgotten my password.)

    All it has is a simple floppy drive, but it's in great working condition, so I thought I'd see if I can get Linux on a floppy for it.

    So here's where you come in.

    Does anyone know what the best distro is that comes on a floppy, and if and where I can attain this?


    Thanks!
