Tiny Me is supposed to fit 128 meg machines, I installed it on a neighbors computer with 256 meg and he loves it.

Puppy, Absolute(based on Slackware), Slitaz, will work on older hardware. Puppy is more geared toward older hardware, Try the newest version of puppy first. If that doesn't work, then use one of the iso's out of puppy-431/special puppies.

Wink Thank you

I looked into the Slackware operating system and am currently downloading it. I should have checked the system requirements for Ubuntu before trying to install it. I think that is why I was having so much trouble installing it. The PC I tried loading it into doesnt meet the minimum recommended specs. I found some really interesting reading material on Linux. The books are "The Linux Bible", "Linux in a Nutshell", and "Slackware Essentials". I would suggest these books to any other newbies wanting to become more familiar with the world of Linux. Thank you everyone for your time and suggestions. I will let everyone know how it goes with intalling Slackware.
