And a big thank you to you for this work.  This is something I've been
meaning to try for some time but you've saved me the trouble.  Some people
at the GGI project ( have also been talking about doing
this for GGI.

It would be nice to distribute a three or four-floppy set including a basic
Linux and a viewer which would turn your old machines into VNC thin clients
without any need for X, Windows, DOS....
