Which Distro will work for me?
I have an old toshiba laptop, with 200mhz cpu, 32mb ram, 2 gig harddrive. I am somewhat new to linux, and am having one hell of a time trying to find a distro that will actually install on this laptop. I have tried to install redhat 7, 8, and 9, suse 9.1 personal, smoothwall, damn small linux, elx. Whenever I try to install, it hangs or gives me an error when its trying to start the installer. I have been able to get live cds like knoppix std to work, but not the regular knoppix, and i really dont want to have to boot off a cd everytime. If anyone knows of a distro that works well with old school hardware, or is just an old version, i would appreciate it. Or maybe some trick to getting the ones i metioned before to work would be great. I have tried different boot options, but they dont seem to help much. Any advice is much appreciated.
