Am I really being hosted by a 386

When I ran a set command, I saw the following

HOSTTYPE=i386
MACHTYPE=i386-pc-freebsd3.2

Is my provider really hosting us on a 386  ??

Probably it just refers to the machine architecture.  Hardly anyone
uses real 386's these days.

Nope.
The i386 is meaning Intel386 Architecture (PC)
I386-pc-freedbsd3.2 is meaning that the machine is running FreeBSD (A
Linux/Unix clone) on a PC.

Did time(2) return a negative value? :^)

1. Redhat 5.1 in 4 Meg of RAM on a 386...am I insane?

Well, I'm trying it. It's a 386 SX 16, I have two hard drives, one a 204
and the other a 107 hanging off of the drive controller (replacing the
massive ST225 and ST251 that it had when I got it (20.5 meg and 51.5 meg
drives respectively)).I cant' seem to get it to boot past mounting root.
I"m guessing that it's running out of memory, although it doesn't say
that it does. It just sits there doing bdflush() s for a few minutes and
then stops altogether (no command line options at boot:). Does anyone
have any ideas as to how I can get it past that? I tried specifing
mem=3m to see what happens, and I get a "unable to load NLS charset
cp437(nls_cp437)" and, after it mounts the root,  "Can't start initial
console".(boot: linux mem=3m root=/dev/hda1)..other combinations usually
result in Kernel panic: VFS: unable to mount root or an outright out of
memory message (mem=4m and any other paramiters..anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance....

Dave
P.S. in case you haven't noticed, I'm kinda new to Linux...so thanks for
bearing with me :)
