Loads of questions! old laptop, installing Linux distro
Help! I am a Linux newby needing advice.
For old laptops(486, P1), which distro is best, and what is the prefered way to install? I have checked several Linux forums, and noticed Damn Small Linux and Vector Linux are often mentioned.
I want to do clean installs of 100% linux(no dual partitions) with GUI and an office suite or at least a word processor and some games.
I also want to install an ISP, which free ISPs offer Linux support?
Assuming it uses an external CD Rom, can I install DOS and driver for the CD Rom, then install from the CD, or does it have to boot into Linux to install Linux.
