Single ISO linux distro?


Any good single cd's (single iso for install) linux versions?
General home user distro or work desktop would be awesome.

Please, please don't flame on this, it is more than the generic question of the "best linux version" post that we have all seen.

Maybe you should create a LFS system, check out www.distrowatch.com for distribution and their details!

Welcome to LQ, Itor66.

Markus, don't you think that creating an LFS system is a little drastic for a newb? I mean, you need to have a working Linux system to do LFS, anyway!

I know for a fact that Mandrake can install from 1 CD... you just have to tell it that you haven't got the other two! I don't think you can do this with RH. If you wanted a challange, you could install Slackware - that comes on 1 CD, almost

Single CD distros that I've used or downloaded include:

SOP Linux (maybe SOT, might have written that down wrong )
Knoppix
Mandrake (all versions)
Slackware
Debian (I think you only need the first one)
Older SuSE distros, actually probably most "older" distros would only have 1 disc, just depends on how old you go
Caldera
TurboLinux

Ok, so some of those might have more than 1 disc, but you would only need the first to get it installed, the other disc(s) are just extras. You can also look into floppy distros if that is your cup of tea.

Cool

Well just an option, I don't think it's that hard since it's explained well enough in the LFS book so why not give it a try Of course you need a working system but just in case for later ...
