    I think it should work on any today's pc! If your pc is slow, then you can use Fluxbox or some other lightweight WM.

    Okay I found it. I think. This is what it said on the freebsd website..............

    FreeBSD for the i386 requires a 486 or better processor to install and run (although FreeBSD can run on 386 processors with a custom kernel) and at least 8 megs of RAM to install and 7 megs to run. You will need at least 150MB of free hard drive space for the most minimal installation.

    Keep in mind that those stats are for command-line use. You'll need something more powerful than that if you want a decent gui.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    Roughly equivalent (without a gui) I would think.

    Okay I have a Cyrix 686 PR166 with 128mbs of ram and an 8.6 gb hard drive. Which would you recommend Freebsd 5.3 or Mandrake 7.0?

    I would probably go with FreeBSD; it's newer, more modern, etc. You could probably run fluxbox relatively well on that machine for a gui.
