Hi there! I was just wondering what would be the best linux distro for my really old hardware. It has 64mb of ram, a 533mhz processor and a 4mb *i think* video card. I have it sitting in my basement and want to make it of some use. It runs windows 98se. I have tried damn small Linux and puppy Linux but nether will bring me to a desktop. I got tinycore to run but I was looking for something with a little more functionality. That's where you guys come in. I'm willing to try many different distros as long as they can be run from a live cd or flash drive. (I use flash drives currently for tests along with a floppy that enables USB booting on this old thing). Any suggestions are appreciated!
