Just posted up new builds for the recently-released VectorLinux 5.9, download location at http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...kage_id=256936
VectorLinux-specific guide located at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=4062492
http://vectorlinux.com/ (PS that post was a general announcement, not specifically targetted towards anyone)
I've uploaded builds UNetbootin builds for Ubuntu 8.04 http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...kage_id=256965 and openSUSE Factory http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...kage_id=256968
Ubuntu instructions are the same as before (install, reboot), while openSUSE factory instructions are as follow:
If installing openSUSE, after rebooting, ignore any error messages and select back if prompted for a CD, then go to the main menu, select the "Start Installation" option, choose "Network" as the source, choose "HTTP" as the protocol, and for the server, specify:
and for the folder, if installing openSUSE Factory, specify:Code:download.opensuse.org
Since both of these are experimental distributions, and thus frequently change, the UNetbootin builds will initiate the download of the latest builds of that distribution's netboot initrd and kernel files from the official mirrors rather than bundling them in. (Which is why the filesize is now down to a couple of kilobytes rather than several megabytes)Code:distribution/SL-OSS-factory/inst-source/

btw- thanks a bunch for your work on UNetbootin! Next time I get one of these silly little computers, I'll go your route. I'm half tempted to try out CentOS someday.
Can you to compile UNetbootin for Xubuntu and/or Fluxbuntu. I had trouble installing Xubuntu on my old laptop via live cd. It hanged during partitioning process. Could be I have insufficient ram or something is wrong with my cd-rom.
Edit : Oops.. Got it. There is a post in here which says that Xubuntu can be install using the UNetbootin for Ubuntu. Well, is it possible for you to compile the UNetbootin for Fluxbuntu

Attempting to maintain functioning 3rd-party PXE initrds would be extremely difficult, due to the constant changing of the respective distibutions; however, if you or anyone else finds working PXE/netboot initrds for these Ubuntu derivatives you want supported by UNetbootin (same goes for other distros), just post the links here and I'll have the UNetbootin builds ready as soon as possible.
However, you can still get the same outcome of installing fluxubuntu; just use the Ubuntu version to Install the base system (no desktops), then
You can then proceed to install the other applications using the same approach, and you'll eventually end up with a Fluxubuntu desktopCode:sudo apt-get install fluxbox

I tried this just now, however it said it cannot find any network devices (i have a gigabit onboard network card) so clearly i need some kind of driver.
Is there anyway to load a driver ?
