what you're thinking of here is progeny i belive.  or possibly libranet,
or storm.  i've only tried storm, which is quite nice.  but, progeny will
probably turn out all right if ian murdock is involved.   libranet used to
charge for their cds.  which was nuts.  so i had no interest in trying

at this point i'd turn my desktop into a progeny install... except that my
desktop is unstable, not potato which it must be to apt up to progeny.

anyhow, just thought i'd throw that in there...  that
and..  corel?   gag.  i have never seen a less userfriendly linux distro
ever.  well, maybe redhat....
