Hi all, thanks for your input.
For now, I have upgraded the machine to 4.7, but I am still interested in
getting 5.0 installed...

(oops... the machine is only a P133... :)

Where are the system requirements for 5.0 listed? (I didn't find
memory/HD/processor specs in the early-adopter's guide or other places...)

Since PC133 is so cheap, I'm loathe to scrap around for/buy old SIMM's...

(already upgraded to 4.7)

As I mentioned before, the boot floppies start to launch sysinstall, and

Is there anything I could to to work around this (short of upgrading the
