SLAX - Live CD is a bootable CD containing a Linux
operating system. It runs directly from CD-ROM without installing. The live CD
described here is based on the Slackware Linux distribution and is downloadable
from its website as an ISO image. All scripts and source code which can be used
to build your own live CD are also available.
SLAX is fast and beautiful Linux operating system which
fits on small (3.14") CD-ROM disc. It runs directly from the CD (or USB)
without installing. The Live CD described here is based on the Slackware
Linux distribution and uses Unification
File System (also known as unionfs), allowing read-only filesystem to behave
as a writable one, saving all changes to memory.
SLAX is available as an ISO image of the CD. It fits on
small 8cm CD-R(W). Burn it with your favorite cd-writing software and then boot
from the CD. You might want to check your BIOS to assure it's set to boot
the CD prior the disc. Read changelog
and known bugs
before downloading please.

Special SLAX versions
Some people prefer modified versions of SLAX, designed
to provide some extra functionality. Even though SLAX is modular and allows
people to extend it easily, I'm releasing these special modifications to help
beginners use Linux. Here you can see some little examples of what miracles can
be build on SLAX basis.
