Projects / PeeWeeLinux


PeeWeeLinux is a small Linux distribution for embedded applications. It is based on a RedHat 6.1 development platform, and features a graphical configuration tool, minimized XFree86 for embedded use, and small packages suitable for floppy-based systems. PeeWeeLinux differs from other small Linux distributions in that it is fully customizeable; its development environment allows for the building of embedded sytems from small single floppy routers to thin clients running from 64MB flash drives.
