I'm pretty sure DSL (Damn Small Linux) can run from ram.
You're correct, you can set up a Fugal if you want (needs 50mb)or a regular Debian install (about 200 mb needed) there is also a "embedded" version that you run from inside windoze , I have never bothered to try either though.(I use it "live" only with "toram" cheatcode ) I keep my settings on a floppy http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/i...Frugal_Install
Can anyone else confirm that Scientific Linux is capable of booting toram and/or suggest any other distributions that can run completely from RAM?
Has anyone discovered a way to run any of the major distributions like Slackware, Debian, or Fedora completely from RAM?
(Actually my googling around on this question did turn up at least one answer here.)
