Flash Linux is a small Linux distribution designed to fit onto a 256Mb USB Flash key. The current release comes as an ISO image of a Flash Linux "Live CD". The CD includes a script to transfer the CD onto a key. This release contains mostly the same content as the previous release but the JFFS2 filesystem should dramatically increase your keys lifespan.
This release fixes all the problems reported on 0.3.1 (and then some) and adds a couple of new features.
Flash Linux is a compact distribution designed exclusively to run off 256Mb USB keys or other bootable Flash based media.
This should be a very useable Linux distribution designed to fit onto a 256Mb USB key. Includes Gnome 2.8, Evolution 2.0, Gaim 1.0, XChar 2.0, OpenOffice 1.1.3 and more. Includes full hardware detection.
Version 0.3 is due for release on the 24th of Nov 2004
This is a technology preview release, it will work well on some hardware and not at all on other hardware.
Be on the lookout for bugs.
