Hi! I need help on finding a decent suitable linux distro for the following (1994) Intel spec PC:
Pentium 133 (Yes!)
500Mb Drive (Yes!)
ATI-Rage Video Card
It has 519Mb 100% assigned to a single FAT16 partition with win98. I plan to wipe this out for:
80Mb Linux Swap, 20Mb Linux boot, 400Mb Free space for Linux.
With the above in mine what distro to download would you guys recommend?
This is a hobby effort and the aims of the box is learning:
i) work in text most most of the time
ii) some work in X (if possible) - not really necessary
In otherwords, what distro would meet the constraints and wouldn't be too difficult to install. I would consider myself a recent newbie. I have installed RedHat 8 and 9 before.
Finally, would the partition division be suitable above. ie would 80Mb be big enough swap for 64Mb? (I heard the x2 rule) and 20Mb for the boot (gulp! many I need to make that 50Mb?). That would leave me with around 400Mb for the distro proper.
Again, Thanks for any Advice.
