    No Linux Installation Will Work For Me?!


    I've burned SO many freaking CD's that I'm running out!

    I'm using an old PC, with only 248MB of RAM.

    I tried Lubuntu, but it was too big. Since I'm using an external disk drive, Puppy Linux won't work, because it can't locate it. Crunchbang and Slitaz both don't work because they don't seem to recognize any of my keyboards so I can't boot up from them. A few others I've downloaded don't even show the boot things at all.

    I'm tired of downloading CD's, I just want something to work right for once!

    An external drive shouldn't be an issue for Puppy. Can you describe your setup and more about the external drive issue?

    Try Legacy OS or AntiX, they have worked for me on older hardware.
