    You come across that in the security focus mailing lists by any chance buddy?

    Wouldn't you be referring to "firebird" instead of "thunderbird" beign that the second is an email client?

    I have this same problem, what is wierd is orginally I had it running on my Toshiba Satelite 2435, then it decided it didn't wanna work anymore. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out why exactly something crazy like might happen. Might have been the autoclaveN, just a guess though. Something that it probably has allot to do with in your case and mine both is this Possible Problem . Then again it could be because Toshiba is doesn't practice sodomy on a regular basis and thus makes a crap product.

    Specifially under the "Special Cases Section"

    As I was looking to link this I noticed that a new version of STD was released today STD 0.1 , goodtimes.

    name is kinda dweeby, but it is a full featured tool kit

    I really like p.h.l.a.k, as mentioned briefly in that list.
    good options, what I want to try is one of those boot from a usb key ring things.

    I'll vote for Slackware Live, now known as Slax. Chock-full of Slackware goodness in a bootable distro. http://www.slax.org/

    the .2 release sucked, it was unstable, and seems to have bad hardware compatability, but the .2-1 release works wonderfully for me and my friends now. its currently our primary live distro, used with fluxbox : )

    Good list! Although it is not exactly in the same boat, Trinux is well worth checking out, and it has .iso images for putting the whole shebang on one disk..

    Well I guess slackware live is a winner atleast for my daughter, she would rather have slackware in and running than a windows game.

    For today's modern Linux zealot on the go, there's MandrakeMove, a live distribution designed to be used in conjunction with a USB pen drive for storing your personal data and settings.

    This is what prompted this question, I like the 185mb size.

    Although its not Slackware live have you tried Gnoppix .
