    I've not installed MDK lately, but unless you can install it without pretty much everything, it won't work. For that type of system, you'd be better off using either slack, a *BSD, DSL (Damn Small Linux), or even Debian. All of these have small base install footprints, allowing you to add what you need.

    I wouldn't even think of running anything close to X on that machine with 26M of RAM.
