Linux distro, suggestions
I was wondering what Linux distribution you'd recommend to an old computer:
486 @ 66MHz
12MB RAM (4+4+4)
~400MB Hard drive
I willl use it primarly as a web server and if possible also a DNS server. So I'm looking for a small distro that matches the system requirements above and use around 100-200 megs of space preferably less
Try either debian (visit linuxworld.com their PCs for peanuts article will help you out) or slackware. I myself am a SuSE user but the later mentioned distros are very good to get more punch out of older systems.
Have a lot of fun...
I'd have to agree with debian. However, I have an old IBM Thinkpad: 486-75, 20MB ram, running Red Hat 6.2. X is slow, but what do you want =)
