Take a look at NetBSD. It usually works fairly well on older hardware. Otherwise I do know for a fact that FreeBSD 3.1 will install and run just fine on such a machine. (Later 3.x and 4.x versions of FreeBSD will also run fine on that machine, but somewhere along that line (I think it was around 3.4 but I am not certain) the minimum memory needed to *install* FreeBSD increased to 12MB.) -- <Insert your favourite quote here.> Erik Trulsson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
