mafiafromrussia, if you are thinking of trying Linux for the first time, I would recommend Mandrake or Red Hat as they are the easiest to set up and use. Then you can move up to "real" distros as you learn. They will run just fine on that old machine you have. One of my Linux machines is running on a Pentium 133 with 64 megs ram and a 2 gig hard drive.
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
