Debian install segfaults repeatedly on ancient laptops
I have an old laptop (Pentium 100 Mhz, 1.3GB HD, 32 MB RAM) and am trying to install Linux on it. The Debian install program repeatedly segfaults, and I have not even come close to completing the install. Should I try Slack, or should I just let it go and try a newer laptop? And, this laptop does have a CD-ROM drive, but is Slack still installable from floppies? That may be the best way to do it; I suspect that the CD-ROM may be in questionable shape.
