Linux Question

How well will it work with a 133 MHz machine? I've got one laying around not being used and I would like to play around with it some.

Works great for command line. If your running X it'll be sluggish.

How hard is it to get running on a clean system? I am starting to scout parts for a new system. I wanted to try a dual boot with Linux on one partition.

You might want to stuff as much RAM into the box as possible. Last time I tried to install RH on a 133mhz/32mb machine it wasn't real happy, and 'X' was out of the question.

Running X windows on the machine would be stupid, it would be like trying to drag race a civic.

However, running services like http, email, dns, ftp and routing would run just fine on it.
