I was able to.

Next semester at Cornerstone U I'm teaching an Intro To Linux class.  The 
first part will be trying out a bunch of distros.  I do have a time limit 
of some kind, so I can't try all of them.  I was thinking of Fedora and 
Suse (major rpm based systems), Ubuntu (current debian based system), 
Gentoo (because I'm sick), and Slack (out of respect) for the large 

I thought we'd look at a couple cd based ones, Knoppix and Gnoppix for 
example.  Then a couple micro distros, which I don't know much about. 
Something like Damn Small Linux.  Any suggestions on a couple of these? 
I'd love to get some that install on USB sticks that would be really handy 
for the students.

Can Suse iso's be downloaded free these days?  I remember they didn't use 
to be.

Any suggestions on changes?
