Older distros in italian language


I try to find some older distros just for curiosity (specially in Italian language):
KnoMax 3.2005
Linux Magazine miniCD 2.0,
Trinacria Linux,
madeinlinux 4.0,
Prosa Debian,
UserLinux,
FTOSX Desktop,
O-Net....


For the case there is someone who knows that one or the other distro is sleeping on a ftp-server waiting for a download it would be nice to indicate this server to me.

Thank you

Soltanto italiano? You should be able to do a google search. linux.org use to have distros by language.
http://www.google.com/#hl=en&q=linux...fp=OlAWEoQSgPM

Sabayon linux ( from www.distrowatch.com) is supposed to be italian, though I thought it was supposed to be spelled zabaglione. Mi dispiace ma, io non parlo italiano.

Thank you I did the google-thing,
I know that there are a lot of multilingual distributions as:
SabayonLinux, Mandriva, Fedora, Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, OpenGEU, SAM Linux, Linux Mint Universal, ZevenOS, Zenwalk, Sidux, Ark Linux, GNOPPIX 1.0, .....

I found also:
openmamba, Slax DaVinci Edition, ufficiozero, Stux, AUSTRUMI, GNUstep, Comfusion, QiLinux, knopILS, eduKnoppix, KnoMax 2.2005, Hakin9 Live 3.0,...

or:
Debian, OpenSuse, FoX Desktop 1.0 professional, How-Tux,...

But the more distros and versions I learned to know the more I became interested in those forgotten ones. Often they are great and they had been a lot of work to produce but because of lack of support, money or marketing they couldn't survive against the big and powerful like Ubuntu & Co.

That is way I asked for
KnoMax 3.2005, Linux Magazine miniCD 2.0, madeinlinux 4.0, Prosa Debian,
UserLinux, FTOSX Desktop, O-Net....sleeping on a ftp-server - because they aren't to find by normal googeling.
Fox Desktop I found after one month of research just by case. I read so many things about Linux Magazine miniCD, and KnoMax 3.2005,... that I became curious and I also thing that even big distros could often also learn from the small ones. They existed because the big ones didn't fulfil everything.

So it is not everything just in italian - that are the lost diamonds.
I am also interested in German distros but there I had more success in finding what I was seeking for (up to know). And I did the research so I don't ask you to do the work for me.
I ask you if by case you know something google doesn't know (because you are working in an archive or so on) mirrors nobody things about.
This way I found very old Puppys and Knoppixes, Fox-Desktop, rare Slaxes,.. so if you are trying to find something special I might know it - just ask.
I also know http://www.linux.org/dist/list.html
The site is great but many of the official HomePage links doesn't work anymore.
