Small Footprint...little RAM


I got an old clam shell mac given to me. I would like to fiddle with linux, but it is slower then the second coming. Has 8 gig and 32 ram but I can get it up to 64.

Any recommendations?

busybox <-- base linux system
uclib <-- dynamic libraries (glibc replacement)
kdrive <-- trimmed down x server

Entire Linux system in under 10 MB. A little bit of extra work, but worth the effort if you need a small Linux system.

regards,

**edit**
you can add in whatever apps you want to this, this is just a base Linux system to get yous tarted.
