:Pengy: Linux and/or BSD variant on an old mac?
I just received a Macintosh LC III back from my aunt who was borrowing it from my family. I would really like to set it up as a dedicated linux/bsd box, but I don't know if a) it's compatible, or b) which distro I should use.
Macintosh LC III specs:
processor: 68030 with 32 bit data bus
speed: 25 megahertz! (woohoo!)
memory: 4MB of RAM
storage: floppy disk drive, 40-160MB hard disk (let's go with 40 as a worst-case-scenario), external CD-ROM drive
I might have some more information if you need it.
I just started with Linux this summer, and I've only ever used Slackware, but I am a quick learner and I'm happy to try another distro. I guess the real question is, is it possible to run linux/bsd on this computer? If it is, which distribution should I use? How would I go about installing linux?
Thank you very much for your time,
