    Hi, couldn't find this in archives:

    I have an oldish machine which I want to use for experimenting with Linux installation before I consider using it on my proper machine.

    The old machine is a P90 with about 32MB of RAM. I tried installing Linux Redhat 7. sthg and the machine hung when the packages (packets?) stage was reached.

    I have assumed that the machine is just too naff, backward, inferior and old for this flavour of Linux.... but is there a version of Linux basic, simple, unsophisticated and plain enough to be feasibly installed?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    I always suggest MDK 7.1;it seems to install on just about anything.
