Getting some time off soon and traveling, I would like to take some time to familiarize myself with the Linux command line, without modifying my G4 Panther PowerBook.
The idea would be to boot form a small Linux distribution on a small external drive, be it USB drive, large CF card and whatnot.
Can boot Linux from external?
Best distribution with small footprint, or possibility of custom minimal install?
- I am not looking for a full-fledged package, just a core Linux to practice command lines.
- I realize I could do most of that within OSX, but like the idea of leaving it alone for now..
