Thanks for the suggestions. I'll try out DSL and see how it goes. Can I run RealPlayer with DSL or do I have to find another media player?

The ASRock Motherboard comes with a 4 second Boot setting. Basically it takes a while to shut down but it really brings up windows in mere seconds.

it just re writes shut down to be a c3 halt state instead...

I'd say go all out, and put a DSL distro on a RAM DRIVE but thats just me and you'd need a UPS

*shrivers* .. realplayer in the devil haha ...just my opinion though..


I am not sure, because i don't use realplayer, but I don't think that DSL supports realplayer. You would probably have to run it through wine.

If you are looking for something really quick maybe try a custom build of knoppix which uses fluxbox. I built my own distro of knoppix with fluxbox and it loaded fairly quickly. It takes a little bit of tweaking knoppix to get it to boot with fluxbox but once its done its pretty nice. And if you are into customization fluxbox is amazing!!

the only down side is the package manager... apt-get in my opinion isn't the greatest.. I would take yum over it any day


good luck man


cheers
