I just built a little computer out of a bunch of old dead towers sitting in my basement. Its not a great machine.
Heres the specs:
256 megs sdram
32 med on board video (i'm pretty sure its 32 (no os installed yet))
20 gig hdd
Heres the problem:
I wanted a 2nd little linux box just for surfing the net and word proccessing,
so this was perfect. I put Mandrake 9.1 on it and it ran just a little too slow for me (okay alot to slow) I'm thinking its just the hardware slowing it down. The last time I had a machine like this (it was good) I had mandrake 7.1 on it. I was hoping someone could suggest the right release of linux for a machine like this, I'd like to use mandrake but I don't want to back pedal all the way back to 7.1 if I don't have to. Also I've been thinking of switching to RedHat. Any ideas???
