    Slackware LiveCD?

    I'm literally just cutting and pasting this from another forum I already asked this on:

    I'm fooling around with different Live CD distros right now, still getting a sense for what's what in Linux (WinXPPro user on a laptop here,) and it seems all the Live CDs I've found so far are Debian based, but espeically after readign the reviews of Slackware on this site, I am uber-curious about Slackware and would like to try it as a LiveCD. (I want to have a very solid grasp of Linux before I make ANY OS change.) Does anyone know of any good Slackware-based or Slackware-like LiveCD versions that I could try? Especially anything that would work well on a laptop is appreciated, and if I can boot it from a 512MB USB stick (I'm dreaming, aren't I?) then you're my new best friend.

    Take care, and thanks!

    Definitely SLAX, it is modular ( allowing you to install programs onto the cd, so it only has what you want it to) and pretty fast. When I used it i used the popcorn version.

    Slax was the first distribution I tried, I think it's great. The GUI looks great.
