Linux "I am faced with a challenge: I need to find a Linux distribution that is both small enough, efficient enough and easy enough to maintain for my laptop. Realizing that all Linux distributions are not created equal, I did my research and was able to narrow my list to a handful of distributions that may be suitable for my needs and my laptop. Throughout the course of this article, I am going to test each of these distributions on my laptop and discuss my experiences. I will attempt to install and evaluate each distribution for a period of a couple of days. Based on my findings, I will select the distribution that best suits my needs."

I like Mephis lite, but it kept getting corrupt and I never could figure out why. Debian would be my first choice for the described hardware. DSL might be too lite. I have had good luck with Puppy. Did anyone think of a lite distro on a CF card installed in a PC card adaptor?
