    Which Linux Distribution Is Best For My computer?


    I have a very slow computer with Windows 98, and I just want it to run Linux. Its specs are:

    Pentium MX 200 (200 mhz)
    128 MB RAM
    1 MB Video Card (Trident is the brand I think, it's very old)
    8 GB HDD (or maybe 10, I dunno it's really small)
    D-Link DWL-520 Wireless card
    DVD/CD Reader

    What distribution would work best with this hardware? Thank you for any help

    See "Which Distribution of Linux Should I Choose?"


    I'd say something very small. I would not install X.

    Welcome to the forums, SnoopKatt

    The fact of the matter is, nobody here can tell you which distro is the best for you. Take a look through the link provided above and decide on a few distros you'd like to try. After playing around with them a bit, you'll start getting a feel for what you want/need.

    Don't hesitate to start a new thread if you should have any problems, or questions.
