Linux on an Old Laptop Computer
I want to install linux (any distro with X window manager, preferably RH) onto an old Dell Latitude XP 450CX. It doesnít have a CD-ROM drive or a network card, only a floppy. I want to just set it up for the X Window System, OpenOffice (or other Office replacement), and a few games (doesn't matter what kind). I would like to install linux to the hard drive only if I know for sure that Iíll get a working computer out of it. Right now, it has Win95, an 800mb hard drive (200mb free), a 50 MHz CPU, and 12 Mb of RAM. I also have a working linux desktop. I was just curious :o if I could go about installing linux across a serial port or something. (I know, it would be slow, but I think that I can deal with it (with many long nights :shock: ) anyway.) Any help would be appreciated.
Also, if you donít think that I should even attempt this, I *guess* that I could live win W95.
Thanks in advance,
