Hrmm, is there one available on location?  I'm not sure.  Maybe
someone else knows...

I have used Xebian many times, and find it quite usable :-)  Never
tried GentooX, but I wonder how fast compilation times will be, if it
is exactly like the standard distro (xbox == 733 Mhz cpu).  I have
also used Dyne:bolic and dunno about xUbuntu...
