I don't think it will let you with anything less that 64mb. You might want Red Hat 7. If you want a newer distro try Slackware or Debian. However, KDE and GNOME won't run. A light window manager would. Of course, 26 is enough for a small server.

It depends what you want to do. I have a file server running with a pentium 166 mhz with 48 mb of EDO ram, but I am not running any gui apps and only samba, nfs, with a few other apps.

It can be done with 48 megabytes.

What do you want to do with the pc.
