What linux should I put on my old computer?
I have a computer that is very old but still boots up (it actually doesn't even have an Operating System on it, long story) and I want to get a version of linux on it. Any way I want to get a version of Linux on it.
Some Specs of My Computer:
128 mb Ram
60 gb harddrive
Intel Pentium 4 processor
I was looking at Damn Small Linux which I like except one thing which is watching Dvds and I haven't found out if you can rip cds onto your computer. (If you know please let me know here) So I want an OS that can play dvds and rip cds onto a computer. Along with of course all the basic function of a computer.
So, what version or form of Linux should I put on this computer?

It looks like the RAM count is your weakest link. If you could upgrade that just a bit, you should have lots of options available to you.
Hope you have fun with Linux.oz
