Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I think you're missing my point. I'm not trying to talk you into using CrunchBang, but rather, emphasize the ease of adding "AMP" (apache, mysql, php) to "L" (the linux distro of your choice: crunchbang, xubuntu, puppy, slitaz, tinycore, etc).
May be you should try either a minimal install of Debian (or Arch, also very minimal standard install) and only add the packages you need. If you use the netinstall CD you should use only a low amount of bandwith.
There may also be the possibility to try Tinycore or Slitaz for that, they are very small, but I don't know if they contain the packages you need.
i have puppy on my flash installed, but i dont seem to find lamp for it.
Puppy is perfect. It has all things i want except lamp. Only if i could find lamp for it...
Is it too hard to compile these(amp) one by one? I could configure them in slackware so i probably know what to do after installing them...
Also there was something in puppy wiki about haiwatha,(or like that, a web server) and there was a pet package for that too but it was for puppy 4 and i didnt know it will work on lucid or not(and it was 11mb)... Anyone know anything?

oh, my problems arent going to finish!
it is a good idea, but the download link is for SourceForge.net which doest allow my country to download(:angry)...
and i cant use something like vpn or proxy because of my speed...
do you have a direct link somewhere else?
most torrent sites here are also censored, so i just can download using a direct link from somewhere... googling didnt give anything.
and puppy has package manager but there is no AMP in it...
i am in iran... sourceforge is blocking iran(i know, it is not fair! :anger)...
i just found that puppy can use lucid ubuntu's repos! that's very great because i can install lamp very easy using ubuntu's repo.
but i have the slow connection problem, but for the sake of this topic, my problem is solved now.
so my solution: USE UBUNTU LUCID REPOS TO DO EVERYTHING!
thx everybody for help
but i like DSL, if you found anything about that, please let me know. thx
