Need some help choosing a distro


Hello, I am not the most experienced linux user, but i am competent.

I am looking for a distro that is as small as possible, fairly easy to install and has a nice GUI on it - preferably Xvesa but similar will do.

The main points are it MUST be samll.

Any help much appreciated

Cheers

Jym

I have looked at DLS and used it as a live cd before, i remember reading a page about a very basic install script for it.

Will try and find that page again and give it a go as im after running it from hdd

Keep em coming

Cheers
