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
Any suggestions on changes?
