Recommendation for a 32mb RAM install
 
Hi all,

I have a laptop (celeron 400, 32mb, 2 gig HD) that I need to set up to add to my basic, take along network kit. Just for telnet via serial ports and basic TCP/IP. Mainly to provide an interface to routers and switches. Can anyone recommend an out of the box, tiny distribution that fits these circumstances?

Thanks Much

peeps here are big on vector linux, but i've never used it.

vector is great in my opinion, but a more networking oriented distro is pebble linux (i think thats how to spell it) its less than 50 megs, so no GUI, but its got a bunch of advanced networking tools and im sure that telnet or sshd could be installed with no problem (if theyr not already installed).

Just grabbed vector and installed..looks like it will do nicely for what I need.

Thanks
