    Are u planning on using X ?
    Cuz if you do, don't use KDE > 3.x, pref. not at all..
    I'm guessing you want to create a fileserver ?

    Stick to Red Hat 6 or Slack 6 or V7... Should work.
    or use a Mandrake Linux < 8

    You can install the 2.4 kernel but it will require more that the 32MB of mem.
