Quake1 requires something like a 66mhz cpu and 8mb of memory
Quake2 requires 90mhz and 16mb
I only remember these because i remember playing them on my 486 :)

But it would make a nice Slackware or FreeBSD machine, Old machines always do :)

DOOM!!!!!
More 486 memories, I remember when we had a family computer, and it was in the kitchen (damn our old house was strange :p ) and i played Doom2 right the way through :D
Can't say I ever played need for speed on it tho.
As for linux...FreeBSD...better :p

Man, doom is awsome.

Speaking of, I have a really, really large archive of DOS games, old school, really. If anyone wants it, give me a PM :)

It's not warez! ;)

lol what i meant is i know all games can't be played on linux. so what good games can be supported on the os. and if you could, send me a link or pics of the screenshot of the desktop of linux. i want to see if it has a start bar and stuf.

i don't think i can download linux on my laptop b/c it requires 64mb of ram and i don't think i have that much on the laptop. i think i have 32 but i will check anway soon.

I mean any reason for wanting SuSe ?
the reason i ask is because its one of few distro's that actually aren't free, and i highly doubt 8.1 would run on the laptop you have.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
