    Installation on old laptop


    Hi there,
    i am looking to intall some form of linux onto my Toshiba Tecra 510CDT. it is fairly old so is not really up to running most normal distributions.
    spec as follows:

    * Processor: 133 MHz Intel Pentium MMX
    * RAM: 32 MB
    Hard Drive
    * Size: 2 GB
    Optical Drives, Other Mass Storage
    * CD-ROM
    i think its got like 4mb video card aswell.

    i was wondering what is the best distribution for this hardware(i was thinking slakware?), and what tweaks might i need to make...

    Cheers
    Philip Oldham

    There is a sticky for questions like this so it will get locked.

    I would use damnsmalllinux on it, www.damnsmalllinux.org
