Version: 20040404ByzantineOS is a software Internet Appliance with a home entertainment bias. It is based on a networked Linux distribution/bootable system with Mozilla providing access to a range of services and applications.
Operating System: Linux
ByzantineOS fits in 32MB (or 48MB) of media and should work on any PC.
Note: With ByzantineOS CD-ROM, there is no need of hard-disks, floppy drives and others. All is needed is a diskless computer with the following parts:
CPU (Intel Pentium)
NIC (Network Interface Card) or MODEM
CD-ROM drive (or DVD drive to play DVD-Video disks!!!)
RAM (128 MB minimum for full graphics)
VESA 2.0 compliant graphic card
The ByzantineOS boots from a CD (business card-sized) and the first thing you will see is a basic menu which allows different types of booting options. These are:
ByzantineOS (Generic): 800x600 framebuffer
ByzantineOS (Generic HiRes) : 1024x768 framebuffer
Now once inside the ByzantineOS type:
to start the X Windows system.
