    Linux firewall bootable floppy??


    I am interested in setting up an old computer to act as a firwall. I would like to know which one is the easiest to set up and configure that fits on a single 1.44 MB floppy.

    uh what?? you want a distro which can fit on a single floppy and will act as a firewall?? even the smallest of distros is 50MB or there abouts.

    As for setting up firewall/routers easily, take a look at smoothwall or ipcop both these distros can be installed to low spec hardware i.e. P2, 200MB hard drive, 64 MB RAM. But none of them will fit to a floppy.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
