Well, long story short, I guess Linux won't work on this computer. Upon closer inspection I noticed that it is a 286 processor, and since I don't think there is ANY Linux kernel compiled to run on a 286 architecture, I suppose I'll have to go with something different. ELKS (Embeddable Linux Kernel Subsystem) looks good, and it will fill the purpose, so I'll have to use that I guess.
