    Linux distro for and older laptop?


    I have an older IBM Think Pad that I would like to load linux on. I
    wanted to know if anyone had a distribution they would recommend for an
    older machine, or if I should just install a stripped down mainstream
    distro such as Red Hat? The machine is a Pentium 2, 233mhz with 64MB of
    RAM and a 4GB hard drive.

    Thanks,

    Try Damn Small Linux

    Damn Small Linux could be the way to go - it all depends on what you want to do with it.
    If you're after a server installation, Ubuntu server could be a good choice...
