Hardware requirements

Recently purchased a Mark Sobel book that includes FEDORA . The book implies that the OS will not run on my 'old' 486 processor. I always thought
that Linux could be made to run on this older hardware.
Can this be done?
Thanks in advance.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
