Question system requirements for slack 10.2 with fluxbox


now...i have a problem.
my machine is very...veery old (it's Celeron 300 with 128 MB RAM and a S3 Savage4 32mb VGA)
i was wondering if slackware 10.2 with fluxbox (it was suggested to me by a friend) will run on that machine.

Sorry if my thread is in the wrong place, or if my english is bad at times...
you can mail me the answers, but i will check here also

Yes, I would guess so...
I ran Slackware 10.2(Fluxbox) on a box with 64 MB RAM,700mhz and 4 MB Video RAM, with some services(smbd, DHCP, http etc.) running, it ran OK. So with your 128 MB's of RAM, I guess it will OK.
Also, check out this one: http://www.slackware.com/install/sysreq.php
