As a newcomer to the Linux scene, I thought I would ask what could I
reasonably run linux on?
Is a 486DX and 4/8MB of memory too little?
I anticipate the machine being a sort of Perl testing server, and
perhaps backing up our main Solaris box with a bit of web serving.
How much CGI work could such a low spec machine be expected to do?
Oh, and finially what distriubtion would you recommend for a new
Linux/UNIX user? The more web servers and things that come with the
distribution the better!!
Thanks loads for all your help!!
