I am considering installing Linux redhat version 4.2 on a intel 486dx2 with 8MB of memory and 120 MB disk.

will that be enough for linux to run well ( running well means it won't take more than 1 minute to load).

It will start well, nevertheless you are a little low in hard disk space if you try to install the complete distribution and you could face RAM problems if you try to run X with many applications ( and because you don't have too much HD you can't add  much swap).

   What are you trying to do with Linux? A better description of  your objectives could be helpful to give a better answer.
