I'm attempting to build a digital photo frame from an old Dell Inspiron 8000. The major hiccup so far was having to disable PCMCIA detection on boot (if freezes otherwise).
But I'd like to ultimately get rid of the HDD from the frame build. I've purchased a 2.5" laptop to CF adapter to install to a CF card. However, the CF card I've got lying around is a 32mb - I'd need to buy a new card if I need to go larger. I'd like to not use anything much larger than a 64 or 128 as it's effectively wasted space (network xfer or USB thumb drive for the photos).
So here's my question...
Using the LiveCD as a base, is there any way to strip out enough components (word processor, spreadsheet, games, perhaps even the GUI) to make DSL fit on the 32mb CF via frugal install?
Thanks for the help.
