About the DSL-N 0.1 RC2

DSL was originally developed as an experiment to see how many usable desktop applications can fit inside a 50MB live CD. It was at first just a personal tool/toy. But over time Damn Small Linux grew into a community project with hundreds of development hours put into refinements including a fully automated remote and local application installation system and a very versatile backup and restore system which may be used with any writable media including a hard drive, a floppy drive, or a USB device.

Damn Small is small enough and smart enough to do the following things:

1. Boot from a business card CD as a live linux distribution (LiveCD)
2. Boot from a USB pen drive
3. Boot from within a host operating system (that's right, it can run *inside*
Windows)
4. Run very nicely from an IDE Compact Flash drive via a method we call "frugal
install"
5. Transform into a Debian OS with a traditional hard drive install
6. Run light enough to power a 486DX with 16MB of Ram
7. Run fully in RAM with as little as 128MB (you will be amazed at how fast
your computer can be!)
8.Modularly grow -- DSL is highly extendable without the need to customize
