Based on: Knoppix
Wikipedia:
Media: Live
The last version | Released: 2003-09-23 | October 2003

NordisKnoppix – a version of Klaus Knopper’s Knoppix, supporting Nordic and Baltic languages, and maintained by Conrad Newton.

Presently, the supported languages include:
– Danish
– Estonian
– Finnish
– Faroese
– Icelandic
– Latvian
– Lithuanian
– Northern sami
– Norwegian bokmål
– Norwegian nynorsk
– Swedish
– US English
to the extent that Debian packages for these languages are available, and that they fit on the CD.
Aside from the Nordic/Baltic language components, NordisKnoppix is the same as standard Knoppix.

When the computer starts up, you have the opportunity to choose the language and several other parameters that will be used throughout your NordisKnoppix session. You do this by typing in the appropriate “boot options” as soon as the “boot:” prompt appears on the screen. Failure to type in any of these options will result in the default US English.

Native-language boot-floppies may be found in the “boot-floppies” directory, where the file README.native-language describes how to modify the CD so that it defaults to your native language.

The project was active between March and November 2003.
The latest version of NordisKnoppix is based on Knoppix 3.2 (?).

WiFiBSD – a minimalistic version of FreeBSD based on the 5.x branch. WifiBSD is aimed for wireless routers running on embedded devices such as boards from soekris.com. In addition to the wi driver WifiBSD includes support for Atheros’s 802.11b/g and 802.11a/b/g Wireless LAN Chipsets. The software is offered as a compact flash image or a small live CD.

WifiBSD was originally based on MiniBSD (also FreeBSD) by Manuel Kasper, but WifiBSD has since evolved beyond the confines of MiniBSD into a distinct project. Rather than being a manual process of reducing FreeBSD by following instruction, developer automate the process with shell scripts. The process of scripting the MiniBSD process has rendered a system much more akin to PicoBSD by Dr. Luigi Rizzo, et’all. WifiBSD is designed to work with current versions of FreeBSD and does not work with anything prior to FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE.
