Reading this thread people are probably thinking what is a DIY OS. Well it is to put it simply taking a basic barebones iso burning it to cd and then installing it adding the modules that you need to make an operating system with what you want for your particular machine. Installation is the same as the os it is loosely based on Puppy Linux.
The base iso is an older remastered and updated version of Puppy Linux with a kernel which is ideal for the pentium 2->, and older machines. The iso boots into a desktop and using the package manager and .pets I have compiled and collected to make a useful system I have included Glibc updates so a modern browser like seamonkey can be used but at the same time use a kernel which is ideal for old machines anyway if you got to the Google Drive site and login with the following you cancheck it out and start building it is a work in progress but provides a more upto date alternative to distros like damn small on machines that can't run more modern os's. A roll your own approach.
In other words a building block style building approach the new iso's have alot of the updates to make easier for the user to deploy their system.
So start building your own OS.
