Linux and Socket 7, Old Version or New?
I have a socket 7 mobo, 200 Mhz processor, 96 Mb ram, 1.5 Gig hhd. I tried to install SuSe 6.2 (retail box set), but failed because install disk 1 had a deep scratch in it (anyone have one they don't need?). I then tried to install an OEM version of SuSe 7.2. This was more sucessful, but it's very slow.
My question is, can I install a newer version like 8.X or 9.X on this old of a machine? Will it recognize my old hardware? Or should I stick with older versions?
I can upgrade this machine to 128 Mb ram and a 10 Gig hhd.
Thanks in advance.
