I know this question must have been asked before, but lacking the search... Also, I am not one of the ask and abandon types, so bear with me.
Which Linux distribution would you recommend for a 10 year old notebook which I do not manage to discard ?
- 386SX 16 MHz
- 5 MB RAM
- 20 MB HD
- 1.44 Floppy
- NO CD drive, so a floppy installation is preferable.
- Current OS: Win 3.11 on PC-DOS 7
- Using Stacker to double HD, can be discarded
Aim: Learn the basic in Linux, perhaps use it to surf the net as secondary machine.
After a brief search in the net, http://www.toms.net/rb/
looks promising, but the distribution is (or seems to be) bigger than 1.44 MB to fit a floppy.
Is there a better option (short of the trashcan) ?
I will double the points to 400 (total, if several contributed) if I get the box humming (sort of)
