shadow1100mfp Posted August 24, 2007 Share Posted August 24, 2007 just a quick question about linux: cleaning out my basement the other day, i found my first computer, EVER.(well, 3rd, but this is the first one i kept) it's the top end model pacard bell(sp?), with an unbelievable 8mb of memory, vast 35mb hard drive, and the huge 14 inch screen lol. that thing served me 7 years of doom (original), but now its just sitting there. would this computer be acceptable to put linux on? and what distro. of it would be best? (perhaps dsl?). i've never used linux before, so i wanted to get started with it on something that i didnt use anymore and i obviously dont use this computer anymore lol. if not, i like the style of the case (it's a media center case, not a tower, and media center styles are pretty expensive cases), so would the locations be uniform to todays standards? (like, would i be able to put new guts in it and just use the case) or would i have to make new holes and everything. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
