I want a very small Linux distribution to run emulated under XP. I thought I would post the distros I try with my EeePC over the coming weeks and months.

The first distro I tried was an old favourite of mine, Damn Small Linux. Using VirtualBox as the virtualisation software, it has run quite well under the small amount of testing I have done thus far. Networking worked “out of the box”, opening my blog under Firefox was seemless and quite zippy.
