Lightbulb Good tutorial on how to set up and administer a small programming desktop environment


I am would like to learn how to keep my system clean of unneeded and unwanted file clutter as I am trying to get the most out of my older home built pc. I am running fatdog64 puppy linux off of a usb stick right now, but I would like to have a small standards based setup on my hard drive to use as a base to build a custom kernel for my pc. Help or ideas would be greatly appreciated. I sure miss my old GEM desktop

Install debian or slackware/zenwalk. Strip everything you don't need and use a minimal Window Manager like Fluxbox, blackbox, icewm.
Install all your development packages and all the kernel config packages.
