Wgcorps Posted February 1, 2007 Share Posted February 1, 2007 The other day I pulled my very old computer out of my closet, I wanted to test out how much traffic my network can handle. So I installed Windows 98 on it, the only problem I have is that no web browser works on it, the only one that works is IE, but everything i open it up "Illegal operation" and my computer crashes... So I figured this would be a great opportunity to install Linux on a box... First I tried Morphix, and goblin-x both of which worked fine on other computer, but neither would install or live boot. Then I got Ubuntu from a friend. I tried a live boot, after about 35 minutes of a long list of errors it finally came up to a command prompt and nothing will run...... I was wondering if there is a lesser version of Linux that uses a windows manager and can run off a computer with....... 190MB of RAM and a 500MGhz processor (Pentium II i think)... Any help would be great... I'm just kinda lost and I really want to get my old computer to run again... well get on web pages with it and be able to download things off the internet with it. -Thanks :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
