Lightbulb distro maybe good for newbies


Hello all you fellow s,

I found a distribution through DistroWatch that may be good for peeps like us. The install is supposed to be really easy if you have a computer running Windows 95 or 98. http://server.opensourcedepot.com/linux/LFW.html
I haven't tried it yet. I posted in the Distributions to see if anyone had tried it and what they thought, but I didn't get any useful response. Maybe we can give the old timers (Linux experience wise) some informative reading after trying this distro.
So who's up for joining me?

God Bless,

fisher

It hasn't been touched in 3 (!!!!) years ... I won't bother even
looking closer at it, but feel free to spend some time with it
and report back ;)



Cheers,
Tink

seems interesting... i'm curious about something:

does the installer create the linux partitions and filesystems?? does it resize the vfat partition??

do you know where i can see some screenshots of the installer??

This distribution has an old 2.0.30 kernel
Maybe they are trying to have Win9x style harddware recognition.

all I know is what I've read at that site. I have emailed the developer to see if there are any informative updates that aren't stated at the site.
