Question RH 7.3: Installing on IBM Laptop Thinkpad 600 (Pentium II, 266MHz). Rush! Rush!


Newbie: Can I install RH 7.3 on a Laptop IBM Thinkpad 600, and is it possible to opt for server version ?

Hello,

I have to try to develop a small website using the above mentioned machine. It is a pilot project: it has to be on Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP.
The laptop's hard disk space is 3.8 Gb.
This project is very important for me; Your help will be forever appreciated.

Freddy

I would go to RedHat's site to see if there are any issues with the hardware -- but there shouldn't be. Beyond that, it should just be a matter of RAM and connectivity.

freddymio,

You don't mention what the memory capacity of the laptop, so there may be an issue. Seems like I read somewhere regarding a minimum memory requirement for RH 7.3 that was kind of high.

I've got an IBM Thinkpad 770 (32MB Ram, 5GB, Pent.233) running Slackware with Apache, MySQL, and PHP with no problems.

If you can go with a different distro, I'd recommend Slack, Debian, or Gentoo. They're quite a bit leaner.

j.

128MB sounds good, but you should still go to RedHat and see if they know of any issues.

Well, you may also want to get some more storage space... Then again, it depends on what exactly your web site does and how much storage you need. Assume that RedHat will grab at least 1 gig of space.
