Linux on a 133 MHz?

Any idea how this would run and would flavor of Linux to use on it? I've got a 133 MHz sitting at the house not being used and I thought this might be a way to "get my feet wet".

if the machine supports booting from a cd check out damnsmalllinux to start out with.. only a 50mb install.. and it can be run from the cd. you can probably run in text mode iwth noproblem.. might even be able to get away with graphical.

If you are just looking for command line check out distrowatch you can surely find something that fits on a floppy.

133 should be fine for command prompt. I ran my home firewall on a p100 with 32mb of ram for a while.

At some point, I tried installing linux on a p100 and ran into some device recognition issues w/ the 10M NIC I was trying to use, though, the CLI worked just fine and I feel that box would have ran fine had I ever gotten it to recognize my old ass NIC
