flashlinux-0.3.3 now available

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.
