    Small Live CD OS

    Can any one direct me to a small (under 300mb) linux distro that will boot on most moden macs? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Sounds like you are looking for a live disk distro you can use from the disk. If so DSL or Puppy should boot on an Intel mac. For a powerpc the Ubuntu live disk is the only one I have used and it is about 700 Mb.
