Post REd Hat 7.1 for IBM xseries 232


Does anyone in this forum knows where I can get an old version of RH 6 xx or 7.xx Im going to use it on an old IBM Xseries 232 which I will eventually use to run VMware 2.0.

Or maybe someone can tell me what other Linux flavor I can run on xseries 232 PIII 1.2 Ghz 2GB RAM. Is there a site I can go to and check compatibility issues for LInux on IBM xSeries 232?


Thank you

iirc, my box at home is AMD 1500+ ie approx 1.3 Ghz, 1.1GB RAM and runs Fedora 8 easily.
You should be able to run most modern distros on yours.

Virtually any Pentium class (or later) cpu with at least 512Mb ram will run any modern distro.
