"If you've ever looked at the project website for CDlinux, you
might not have noticed anything particularly eye-catching. It's a
small project with a small, simple site. And it's not a project
which attracts a lot of attention. However, the open source
community is full of hidden gems and CDlinux is one of them.
"Before trying the distribution, I got in touch with Zhao Xun

"DW: Why did you start CDlinux?
"ZXH: Thanks for asking. CDlinux was first started as a system
rescue and maintenance tool around 2000. At that time, I and my

The most annoying thing was that LILO got overwritten by Windows
frequently. A floppy or CD-based mini-distro would be handy to
solve this problem. That's why I first started CDlinux.
"DW: Will future versions have an option to install to a Linux
partition? Right now it seems the options are to install with a USB
drive or Windows."
