grml under these criteria is another distro to consider.  It's a security 
hardened version of debian.  Basic installation gets a command line 
interface and then the installers cn install the other parts needed on top 
of the command line interface.  Last time I checked grml was still being 
maintained.On Sun, 25 Nov 2012, Jason White wrote:
