2250s: Mobile Intel Celeron 600MHz, 64 MB RAM, 6 GB hard drive
First I'd like to get linux on them and second have them use some older Linksys 802.11b cards (WPC11).
I've tried to get Ubuntu 6.06 on them but the install always seems to stop part way through.
Looking for help and suggestions.
I had Slackware running beautifully on my Toshiba Tecra 780 DVD, 266 MHz, 192mb RAM machine.
The problem is that I had to try to figure out how to manually configure the wireless network card. I ended up dual booting Windows 2000 and using that for internet.
So, slackware is good, but expect that configuring the wireless may be tough (or at least it was for a newbie like me).
