Linux on old Acer TravelMate 210T
I was wondering if there was a version of Linux that might be suitable to install on an old Acer Travelmate 210T. It has 56mb of RAM and about 3GB of free disc space, although I can probably free some more of its vast 10 GB capacity up.
I need it to connect wirelessly to the internet using a web browser of some sort via an old 3com 3crwe154g72 PCMCIA card.
I have tried installing from an UBUNTU 11.10 ISO cd generated from the UBUNTU website, but the install hangs after a bunch of DOS type messages ending with:
I assume this means that UBUNTU 11.10 can't install on such an old PC.
Anyway, if anyone can help by recommending a Linux version that might work on this antique, I would be oh so grateful.
I am totally new to Linux so please speak slowly !
