ChoicePup is a stripped version of Puppy with major software provided by separate SFS files which can be installed and uninstalled quickly, easily and as needed. This makes it versatile and low on computer resource use.

SFS_Linker mounts the SFS in /mnt and then creates a symlink from each file in the SFS to its correct place in the Puppy file system.
Heh :)

For me puppy is also a nice distro, but it isn't quite adaptable.

May be more difficult than it looks.  It failed with both lzma and union versions of open office SFS.
