    Here you find slackware 3: http://carroll.aset.psu.edu/pub/linu...ons/slackware/

    And I guess "sunfreeware" is solaris, so look here: ftp://ftp.uninett.no/sun/sunfreeware/i386/

    Outdated Linux

    I usually download it at www.debian.org, just click "latest stable release"

    I don't know if that was supposed to be a joke about the oldness of Debian but Debian stable is relatively old and may work for you.

    Does anyone know where I can find the ORIGINAL Linux 1.0 that Linus emailed to everyone on the alt.os.minix (?) newsgroup. I can port it if I need to.

    If you are looking for the actual Linux 1.0 kernel, you can find it here: ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v1.0/
