Thanks for the recommendation, but again, Cream is not as lightweight for me as it seems to be for others. Taking 26MB of space on an install is simply unacceptable, I'm afraid. :-) The ISO is only 200MB and that's far more space than I can spare for a text editor. I'm currently using MP-5 (sacrificing in the noob-friendly department a bit, but not much), and it takes up about 1.0MB with dependencies.

6.3MB of package files are needed. 26.0MB will be used.
