I have several 486s with 16MB of ram and a 500MB hard drive. They have no floppy disk drives, but an external cdrw has been attached but I could not get linux to boot from it.
They are not used and it would be nice to use them for word processing and perhaps to use as a backup file server for essential files.
I do not know what distro are suitable, but they would have to be suitable for a newbie like me.
Thanks for any help.
