Installment of Linux on Extremely Archaic Computer
I have a computer... here are the specs that I could obtain:
Model : AST-IBM 486SX
Memory: 640K Memory w/ 7168K Extension, 7104K XMS. Basically a 4 MB memory.
I guess it is about 20 years-or-so old. It runs MS-DOS 6.22 and Windows 3.1.
I was wondering if I could install any form of Linux/Unix onto this.
If so, what versions would you recommend?
P.S. -- The only way the computer can communicate with the outside world is through floppy disks... I really doubt Tiny Core would work, after I researched it, of course. If my assumption is false, of course, I'll give it a try.
I was looking into more like the archaic versions of Apple operating systems that nobody uses anymore; all I need to do is edit text files and basically nothing else.
