Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


[ Thanks to Avatar for this link. ]

"For folks who are interested in running a full Linux distro right from a FAT partition DragonLinux may be the way to go. Based on Slackware 7.1, DragonLinux V2r1 accomplishes its tasks with minimal fuss and a humorous installation guide. All without the use of UMSDOS. While you won't get little Windows icons or a Windows based configuration utility, what you do get is real live Slackware without partitioning needs...."

"After the initial installation steps were completed a reboot was required. Once back into DOS DL came alive with yet another batch file. Within a minute or so I was presented with a login as well as instructions on getting started. The first thing on the instruction list was how to get a root password set up. Next came instructions on configuring the system followed by how to get rid of the instruction list on boot. I have to say the DL team certainly doesn't leave the user in the dark when getting things together. Warnings about what to do, what not to do, etc... are all posted right where you can't miss them. Very nice."
