1. Whether to, how to (if at all possible) install linux on an older
Pentium 266 mhz, 64 mb ram, with 6 gb hard drive, 36.6 US Robotics
modem, Diamond Monster Sound MX400 card, and Canon S450 printer. This
machine is USB. (Does the latest kernel even support USB?) Everthing
except the sound card and printer is *old*...
2. Would it be easier to just buy a new machine with linux already
installed on it? I've seen a number of decent machines at less than
$500 advertised at ZDnet.com.
If I can save myself $500 I would, but if linux doesn't support the
older parts on this computer I'm willing to spend that much.
Please send replies to my e-mail address.
