MCC was the first distro available via ftp. SLS and Yggdrasal 
came out shortly later from what I recall. I still have the 
my original floppies in storage. The first distro on CD is
rather a tie. I recall SLS and Slackware bundled on a CD
together by Unix Magazine before both distros did it themselves.

BTW I have the initial release of Slackware with the 0.98pl12
kernel on floppies and CD. Slackware was the easiest to install 
out of the 4 distros. Slackware's ease of use made it the leading
distro back then. I remember downloading SLS and Slackware from
a BBS ran by a R. Young in North Carolina.
