SoL (Server optimized Linux) is a Linux distribution completely independent from other Linux distributions. It was built from the original source packages and is optimized for heavy-duty server work. It contains all common server applications, and features XML boot and script technology that makes it easy to configure and make the server work.
SoL-diag is a diskless Linux distribution that was designed for the rescue and analysis of i686 computers. The 36MB image contains over 300 programs, including DVD and MP3 players and CD-RW buring tools. It is also useful for improving your Linux skills and benchmarking computers without having to install programs to the hard drive.

Its an add-on package for SoL 16.00. Its NOT a standalone distribution! SoL-desktop was made because the SoL community requested it and antitachyon was so nice and developed it.
