kmLinux is a complete Linux distribution for schools. It is in development by the Landesbildungsserver Schleswig-Holstein (a govermental organization of the Bundesstaat Schleswig-Holstein) in close cooperation with the Verein Freie Software und Bildung e.V. (Union for Free Software and Education).

kmLinux is very simple to install. In a single, automatic installation process not only the operating system will be installed but a lot of useful software and documentation too. The whole system is preconfigured as far as possible.

kmLinux-2.0 comes with a new installer which is able to automatically resize an existing windows partition (fat16/32). The software collection is very uptodate: kernel-2.4.4, XFree-4.0.3, KDE-2.1.2, kOffice-1.1beta2

More (german) information you will find on the new kmLinux-Homepage. kmLinux is free! Under ftp://fsub.schule.de/pub/fsub/kmLinux you will find a ready to burn iso-image.
