If you are looking for something that install under windows, you probably wont find it, you would be better to try a live distro, this is a distro that runs of a cd/dvd without having to install it. Then if you like it, you can choose to install to the hard drive, you will need a spare partition on your hard drive to do this though.

Ubuntu has a version that you can run under Windows - don't recall the mechanism - is it qemu?

Anyway, if that's what you are trying to do, perhaps look at the Ubuntu site

Wubi install Ubuntu in Windows. You could also check out Cygwin.

Xavier, I got one letter out of 4, does that make me 25% correct (and a q is just a b rotated 180 degrees, so maybe 50%)

I am working with FreeDos and I may need Linux. to compile copy source code from linux
to port etc. Figured that something I could start from DOS would make my life easier.

I already knew about the live cds, so far all that boots is DSL, DSLN, Puppy and Slax
its an older laptop. Lifebook 770TX with 160Ram. Great for dos, so-so for everything else LOL.
Need something lean and mean but not too lean.

Anyone know the status of ZipSlack?
