RE: Debian router (compressed FS needs)
I agree with you about your request.
This week I sent to Vadim a script to build a complete debian-router distro
it can act as a router/firewal/ids etc. etc.
I compressed the usr directory with the cramfs (RO fs), and with the kernel
2.6.5 in total it's 37MB.
Your system how many MB is it?
