small linux's

try to look on http://www.linux.com/interact/links/...Distributions/
there are many distributions.
if you want to find a version you can install the way you wan tyou need to find a tar.gz file. But then you have to look by very small linux's. most linux do have evaluation cd's (not with a time limit just very little apps on it (ofcourse you can download the others and install them).
ftp://ftp-linux.cc.gatech.edu/pub/li...2.1.0.lite.zip I guess you where looking for something like this.
