    It might _just_ run on that, but i doubt it. I would say go for something like an older version of Slackware (8.0 should do it) or Debian Woody. Actually, give VectorLinux a try, that is aimed at old(er) hardware, and should run on that box!

    Slackware! I got version 4 going on a 486 a few months back. Oh, it was so much fun installing off 20 floppy disks! Even better was finding a driver for the CD-ROM that ran off the sound card.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();
