Which version of Linux will work on this old machine?
Hello everyone. I have been searching and cant find what information I need. I have an old Compaq Presario 4540, I want to install Linux on it, a friend suggested Ubuntu. I tried to install it, but it wont work, because this machine is a AMD 200Mhz with 16mB of Ram, with a 2 GB 5.25 hard drive, which on a side note, freaked me out when I opened it up, havent seen one of those huge ones in a while, heheh. Anyways, does anyone know which version of Linux will run decent with a GUI on this dinosaur? It can be an older version of something new, or something new. What ever will install and run without being to awful. I just want this machine to play with nothing major. Thanks in advance for your help.
