Slackware would probably be your best bet. That of a minimal install of SuSE. Unless you 
are short of boxes though I would do without vmware.

Hi List,

I think a good portion of you guys use a VMWare-Linux setup when doing
pen-test (for many reasons). The question i would like to ask is, which
linux distribution works best for this specific purpose ? Obviously you
dont need a distribution with many fency Xwin features and preferably
good networking tools built-in.

I am uncertain about which would work best in this particular scenario
and i really cant think of anyone better then you guys to give me
insight.

Thanks,

-Maxime
