Which distro for this ancient, broken lappy?
I have retrieved from the attic an ancient laptop and plan to give it to a young member of the family as a play-and-learn computer. Internt, basic office are the task it should perform.
Samsung laptop: 32Kb RAM, 4Gb HDD with Windows 98 installed. No modem or NIC present. CD ROM and floppy broken. Not bootable through USB.
I installed (under windows) a portable Freecom Traveller II PCMCIA CD-RW, and a PCMCIA modem.
However, I am concerned that Windows 98 is not exactly a secure system for surfing the net, and would like to install a Linux flavour on it.
My problem is finding the right distro. I would like a minimal graphic environment (no command prompt only) and a decent hardware support to be able to make the modem and possibly the CD RW work.
I noticed that the PCMCIA modem I installed is listed as working in Puppy Linux,... any other idea??
