wow Defcon, did the "Computer Antiques" store have a sale or something? hehe. with that kinda of "Storage Capacity" you won't be able to install a full Linux distro. You might have to get one of those mini distros that you can install from a floppy.
Well you came to the right place. Do you want to have a graphical enviroment (xwindows)? If so try Red hat 4/5 Mandrake 4/5. Also you can download (forgot the website, just search it) a nice small Linux called Dragon Linux. I would go with Dragon Linux. If not, you want a floopy Linux kind of thing. I know many. YOu got Floppy linux, monkey linux, flinux, etc etc... Just search it. Just you really need ram LOL. I'll sell u a gateway color book, 80486DX 75mhz, 8mb ram, 400 mb hd... floppy... has win 95 on it already... SOme erros but go ahead **** around with it LOL. slightly cracked but still awesome.
