Unfortunatly Coyote Linux 2.x is no longer under active development by it's creator Joshua Jackson. There is new version of Coyote Linux 3.x developed by him. It requires IDE or SCSI drive and has slightly higher hardware requirements. There is also new project aimed to continue development of Coyote Linux floppy distribution, it's called BrazilFW Firewall and Router.
