Many differences Repo
its made to go onto USB via Unetbootin with no problems

it comes with many apps other 9.04's dont come with
qemu, openoffice writer, live-magic, remastersys, flash-10, opera
screem, pyroom, many more

I also found a way to re-compress the squashfs filesystem
so when you get Phalanx-9.04, your actually getting a +780mb iso
that has been tricked into ~700MB
Installed-to-hd size is about 3.3GB

that means my ubuntu-9.04 actually has about 200mb more apps than any other
out there, brother

it also has remastersys in it, so you can thus make your very own version

its one of only 2 ubuntu's that feature the LXDE desktop
not, gnome, kde, or xfce

Repo, being a Debianite, you should really try 503box-Live
thats Debian on fire bro
Debian-Live with Fluxbox

it has even more than Phalanx-9.04 too

and, i already got a good review too

I ran it in VirtualBox, and it looks good.
Great work

However for my own system I rather use debian netinstall, and then add whatever I need.
But for people wanting an easy to use distro, allready configured, it's a great choice.
I'm not a distro hopper myself :-)

Keep up the good work.

Thank you bro dog!

I thought you were gonna rag on me at first
you usually hit me with the Negative Waves
though it just makes me work harder
which is probably your aim
were you ever a school teacher Repomeister?

Thats how I usually do my installs too, net-install.

My next project is a Slack LiveCD/USB
Thats gonna be a challenge

and remember that it also includes NetbootCD-3.1.2
which can net-install any major distro

and it has Plop bootmanager, that will boot your usb,usb-cdrom, etc
even on computers that wont boot from usb,etc

Just discovered some stuff too

If you use USB creator in 9.04 or earlier
it will mistakenly change the isolinux.cfg into the syslinux.cfg
this OK
BUT, Ubuntu-9.04 uses syslinux 3.63 which will not give graphical menu
other problem is that, usb creator does not copy the isolinux folder
from iso to usb


so, please use Unetbootin to install to usb
best option is to burn phalanx-9.04 to cd-r
boot it up
insert usb (fat32)
find the phalanx iso
and double-click on the iso
which should open Isomaster app
hold cntrl key and select each file/folder on iso
and then hit the extract button

do all this from the root account
now cut/paste the extracted folders into your usb
using pcmanfm file manager

to install a newer version of syslinux
you need fedora 11, debian 5.03, slackware 13,etc
