I'm an NT expert, but a linux newbie. I'd appreciate any tips for the following machine. 1./ Old compaq laptop 486/75Mhz 16MB RAM 2./ Currently running WFW 3.11 3./ Want to upgrade OS to slightly more modern but needs to operate with this older machine with limited RAM 4./ My options seem to be (based on minimum spec. requirements): NT 4.0, Windows 95 OSR2.5, or a very small "linux distro". Do you have any tips? Most of the linux distros require 128MB and P3. Can anyone suggest anything for this old 486? If not, I think I'll try NT 4.0 since it is "inbetween" win95 and win98.
