Puppylinux and net-tools


(Note: I need to verify this section. Typing this up on a windows machine at the moment)

Many of the PuppyLinux Network Wizards are still built upon the older net-tools utilities via BusyBox. This provides stability with older versions of PuppyLinux. BusyBox is a core component of puppylinux and includes built into it some of the functionality of both the net-tools package and the newer iproute2.

The advantage of utilizing busybox is that it helps to minimize the size of puppylinux. One of the goals of puppylinux is to provide a lightweight implementation of Linux suitable for older computers.
