Samba/ssh server distro help
The college that I am now is notoriously nosy when it comes to internet usage, so I would like to create an ssh tunnel to my box at home because I am big on privacy. Just for kicks, though, I would like to also use this machine as a file server for the house, and I would like to keep the machine's power consumption lower.
I was thinking about using Devil-Linux, but I can't find out if I can install that onto the hard drive to run (or if I even need to do that for my purposes).
Can anyone suggest a lightweight distro that would meet my ssh/Samba needs, and not be a hassle to set up?
For reference, the machine currently runs Debian Etch, has 2 GB of RAM, a 60 GB hard drive, a Radeon (X800/X1300, I can't remember) and I believe a 2.0 GHz processor (I realize that it isn't necessary to go as lightweight as Devil-Linux or even DSL, but i'd like to go as small as I can because... I want to).
