no actually I am individual now, and it was my last year project to develop a linux distro for computational chemistry, and now i would like to do some work on it but still i dont have any funds to buy a domain aor space for it to make my distro online for other peoples to use.
as keep it in mind that my distro is a Live CD version and now I am moving forward to make it embebed Linux.

Well, you can host your website/homepage (for distro) at those sites too and they are also free.

I was just telling you cause you said you don't have enough funds to buy a domain name and hosting.

As far as getting people to contribute in your distro in concerned, you should have a webpage describing your distro and other information, e.g at what stage are you? what is the goal of your distro? etc. (if nothing else start a wiki page on LP.net or post this in forums). I don't think many people would prefer to call you on phone individually for the information, when they don't even know if it is something they would like to work on or not.

Just my 2 cents, at the end it's your distribution and your choice :)

Regards
