It really depends on the kernel configuration, most of them are able to run on any pentium, some come ready to run on a 386 or 486. kernels are available to use with most distros by booting from a floppy if the kernel on the cd does not work.

As far as the gui goes, the more you have running the slower it's going to be. This is not really required to run linux, for a server for instance where you do not need a gui.

The harddisk space required varies depending on what you want to install.

Ram is one of the things that will depend on what the machine does, a simple router needs very little, whereas a webserver that serves a lot of people needs a lot. The more connections to the server the more ram you will want to have.

A workstation needs enough ram to hold the programs you are going to run, plus X and a window manager, or it will be extreemly slow.


As far as suse linux, I guess it depends on the version you are using as to the kernel that comes with it and how it's configured. I would say they would be close to what everyone else does and provide a standard kernel that will run on machines from pentium class up. with the possibility to use a boot disk for kernels that will work with 386 or 486.

it depends on the version, I would probably use redhat 6.1

you could upgrade the kernel and other programs once it's installed

yes you need to configure X for your hardware.

if you look in your log files you should see more information

/var/log/XFree86.0.log

1234,

As root, type the following into a command line:

redhat-config-xfree86

Answer all questions correctly and you should have a working X.
