Cool 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 (window.open, 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.

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

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?
