Installing to ancient computers...HELP!
« on: May 12, 2005, 04:21:02 PM »
What version of linux would be best for an old AcerNote Lite 370PC?
I have full spec as follows:

CPU: Intel Pentium

CPU Clock: 133Mhz

System DRAM: 32MB

Video DRAM: 1MB

Floppy Disk: external 3.5" 1.44MB

Hard Disk: 1378MB

CDRom: 4x (though at the moment cannot boot from cd)

Expansion: pre-USB (but has 2x expansion card slots, where i used to have a USB2.0 expansion card installed, when it ran broadband..amazingly)

anything else you wish to know feel free to ask, but I really need an OS on this looking at the black and white bleakness of dos is upsetting me!

I lost windows 98 when i foolishly wanted to see what windows 1.0 looked like. to find it totally ruined my system. so PLEASE HELP!!!! i miss showing off the fact that my old 133 ran faster than my new vaio (not in EVERY respect.. mainly showed off the fact that in the decade i've had it, it NEVER CRASHED).

Please also state where i can get this software for my old pc, i don't want names fired at me if i dunno where to even start finding them!

email/IM me if u have alot to say on the issue

cheers!

Hello,

You have not mentioned that what software you want to install ?

Although I have played a lot with old machine like urs but if you can clear your intention then I can further direct you! You are talking about windows 98, now you want to install LINUX on it ? with GUI ?

Well.. this is Linux Forum .. but sorry as far as I know.. on such basic configuration only windows 98 can do the best results .

Not even any old linux distro with GUI can work as smooth and versatile as Win98 !
