full featured linux system running from one 3,5" floppydisk


DLX is a full featured linux system running on Intel PC's. The special thing is that DLX comes with only one 3,5" floppydisk. DLX boots with a kernel >= 1.3.89 and starts a ramdisk image. In addition to that DLX also has a writeable ext2 filesystem of about 130 kb on the same disk to easily store configuration scripts (survives booting, is not on the
ramdisk !). Further is DLX fully prepared for the paralell-port ZIP-Drive which allows you to mount 100 mb disks. You can even put large programs like perl5 on the disk because a special directory on the ZIP-disk is mounted as /usr/local/* ! These features make DLX the ideal disk for network trouble- shooting and/or FTPing from a university pc-lab if you do not have your own PC connected to the internet or your dialup is just too expensive/slow.

Downloading DLX

DLX is distributed in source only because it is almost sure that you have a different kernel setup than I have !
