"Phat Linux is primarily aimed at Windows users, who want to try out Linux without having to worry about re-partitioning the whole disk and doing multi-boot setups. This review is based on Phat Linux v3.3 which became available in January."

"The Phat Linux distribution is supposed to be installed on a computer that already has Windows 95/98 installed on it. I've been told that Phat Linux won't work with Windows ME. The reasons for this, I'm told, is that Phat Linux requires access to some DOS functionality which isn't available with Windows ME."

"Just plug in the Phat Linux CD and run setup.exe from within Windows. The install routine is very short and very easy to follow. Just remember to specify the amount of RAM in your machine. During the install it will take a few minutes to inflate all the files contained in a 240 MB big zip file."
