Question

The first Question I have is why DSL? the idea behind DSL is to be Small. Knoppix had wine setup (at least last time I used it) Dont get me wrong I am running DSL on a P1 166 Dell Laptop and I think DSL is good for what I use it for. and by Make a DSL CD do you just want to burn the iso or do you want to make your own Custom DLS CD? if you are just looking for a Live Distro check out http://www.frozentech.com/content/livecd.php
they have over 300 Live CD's Listed

Thanks for the List. I have tested Slax Kill Bill (CD) already and its working good, better than Knoppix. But Wine does not have the VB6 runtime libraries which I need to run the app.
Do you know of a Distribution (CD) with Wine + VB6 DLLs? Or a possibility to make my own CD? I have heard about Morphix, Gentoo and Linux From Scratch as "construction kit".

you can just download the DLL's off the net and put them on a USB Drive.
I jumped on to google and here is the top 2 Url's
