Leetnux is a Linux distribution specifically designed for Linux users who want maximum configuratibility. Therefore, the installation is quite hard, absolutely nothing is done "automagically" as in modern Linux distributions, but the user has total control over the installation. The idea behind Leetnux comes from Linux From Scratch, but a Leetnux system is not as "pure" as an LFS system, because a minimal pre-compiled system must be installed.
The name "Leetnux" derives from the two words "elite" and "Linux". "elite" is often written as eleet, in the script kiddy scene also forms like leet, 31337 or 1337 are common. I mixed the two words "leet" and "Linux" to get the word "Leetnux", an "Elite Linux". :-)
