Great HOW TO from Jake “I was intrigued by the idea of having all my own bookmarks, my own desktop/icon artwork and themes and preferences, all my own programs and data instantly available to me on any computer on campus. The computer essentially becomes a temporary host for my personal operating system — which I carry in my pocket. SLAX seemed to be the best balance of customization, function, and ease of use…This is a howto on installing SLAX on an iPod nano. It may seem long, but I tried not to gloss over or leave out any details”. Link.
