Hi to all,
I'm writing a website (in Dutch) about migrating to linux (the linux-desktop). It's meant for linux newbies and I advice distro's like SuSE and Mandrake. I want to add some info about hardware requirements, and found about Mandrake 10.0:
required RAM: 64MB, recommended RAM: 128 MB
required disk-space: 500 MB, recommended disk space: 1 GB
processor: 586 or higher.
But what if you have an older computer? I cannot find hardware requirements for older distro's (say, from 2000). Can anyone give some ideas about hardware requirements for an older distro, so it can still run on an older computer, but still friendly for newbies?
