Distro to run on Pentium 166mhz 16mb ram (read more...)
I need a distro to run on a pentium 166mhz and 16mb ram.
I need ONLY!!! 2 programs running:

- A browser that can handle basic javascript (, things like this);
- Cups;

I was thinking about opera as browser.

1) Which window manager should i use? Remember, i will only run the browser.
2) Which distro should i use?

You can run cut down versions of Debian, slackware, and just about any distro. But those are the two I would suggest.

I was thinking about it :), using debian (kernel 2.4).

Which window manager should i use?

I would suggest ratpoison, no window borders, background, or any of that fluffy stuff ;)

Ratpoison is a good suggestion for keyboard only use, however check out this site for some other suggestions.

You can install Frugalware, Gentoo, or Arch and only install those things you need and thats it :)

Can somebody tell if it's possible to print from a text browser like w3m or links2?

It's possible to execute a command on a remote computer using javascript?
