small, runs fine on old machines (ibm166+, 48MB)
A new updated version needs a new hd-install
Really nice small linux!
I use it on a really old computer for writing, priniting, listening to music.
The community offers so called dsl-files. The advantage of these files is you just have to put them on to the disc, press the "dsl" button and the app is installed (what works very well).
You can use DSL as live-cd or as hd-install
