    Question Which Distro to use for ftp.


    Ok.

    At the moment, I am using filezilla server on my desktop under windows to act as a file server to my network. Unfortunately, windows is slow and takes ages to boot.

    I have some linux experience, and am looking for the best distro to fill this hole.

    It needs to run on a 400mhz laptop easily
    Really quick boot time (~10 seconds)
    FTP server functionality is what it really needs.
    Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    the best is generally what you are already used to. Just about any distro with no X or gdm running will work just fine on a slower computer. when installing just don't install the extra's.

    I would recommend debian but that is because debian is what I use. it will be easier to go with what you already know.
