blueflops is a Linux distribution on two floppies with a graphical web browser ("links" using svgalib) and an IRC client (tirc).

The kernel version is with almost all of the Ethernet drivers and PPP support (for dial-up connections).

The C library is uClibc-0.9.26, busybox-1.00 is slightly modified, the kernel image is compressed with UPX-1.90 .

You will be able to use https thanks to OpenSSL. One of the neat features is the configuration procedure. The scripts are all accessible by a 'setup' script, and have a nice 'dialog' front-end. Once the setup is completed the configuration can be saved, loaded, erased, it's name changed (you get the picture...).
