    My "old" laptop is new compared with yours XD: PIV 2,6 Ghz. 256MB Ram. Sis graphic card, parallell port(for printers yay!), and a sometimes-blinking screen.
    It used to ran windowsXP (Don't guess how, It ran) and now it has ubuntu Gutsy. I will install Intrepid Xubuntu and use it as a server or test machine.

    Any idea how? The DSL site doesn't really tell a lot on how to install to anything but a hard drive, and unfortunately the winterm doesn't have an HDD in it.

    I know I'm going to have to install to the 64MB flash memory, but not quite sure how to get it there...

    I did some playing with DSL on the weekend and installed it onto a 128M hard drive. However, there were problems that I had to overcome. DSL requires 200M of hard drive space to install. When I was prompted to install the bootloader, I mounted the HD that I was installing DSL on, eliminated the bloat (firefox, xmms, Ted, etc) and then proceeded to install the bootloader, which went without a hitch.

    You should definately see if you can upgrade the 64M to something a little larger. I also think that the DSL developers should make a smaller version of DSL without all the included apps since they can be installed from the MyDSL repos anyway.

    How can you tell I love DSL

    Oh yeah, speaking of DSL, I'm currently doing some mods to my garage PC which I'll be posting about in a day or two with pics. It's becoming a nicely hacked piece of work!

    I have a Compaq Armada ???? (I forget the model). I has a Pentium 133MHz/96MB RAM (I upgraded it from 32MB)/1.2GB HDD/Passive Matrix LCD screen. I loaded Mandrake 5 on it, but beyond that not much. Maybe I should try ubuntu...?

    96 MB is too small for Ubuntu, try Puppy or DSL.

    I just got a new high end desktop: an old Pentium 2,9 GHz with 512 MB RAM, and 40 BG hard disk -- For some, that might be old and crappy

    No problems in running openSUSE 11.0.

    I dont know if my computer would be considered crappy, but it is 9 years old almost:

    • HP Pavilion xt973 Desktop Computer
    • Intel Celeron 1.1GHz
    • 512MB RAM
    • 18GB Hard Drive
    • EVGA Geforce 6200 PCI graphics card

    Whats bad is that the Graphics Card runs faster than the cpu
    Probably the crappiest computer that i have is:

    • Compaq Contura Areo 4/33C Laptop Computer
    • 486 Processor
    • a whopping 4MB RAM
    • PCMCIA slot

    I was trying to install Linux of some form onto that 486 laptop but it has no lan ports, usb ports (not suprising), or a modem. All that is has is 2 Serial ports and a Parallel port. It also has a PCMCIA slot floppy drive .

    That's very close to what I have in my HTPC setup, except I swapped out the 15.3 GB HDD for a 100 GB notebook drive from a dead notebook. The little 6200 PCI card is a decent card as it will do VGA, DVI, and SVHS and is silent. Mine is outputting video to a CRT TV through the SVHS port. The GPU is actually decently-matched to the computer as the 6200 would have been a decent card when your computer shipped and the Celeron 1100 was a not bad CPU then, despite it being a budget Celeron. It was no match for Athlon Thunderbirds but it did give the expensive P4 Willamette a run for its money.
    Desktop: X2 4200+, abit KN8 SLi, 4 GB DDR-400, ATi HD 3850, 1324 GB of HDDs, Dell SP2309W and 2001FP
    Laptop: Dell Latitude E5400, C2D T7250, GM45, 2 GB DDR2-800, 80 GB HDD
    HTPC: Duron 1600, ASUS A7N8X-E, 1 GB DDR-400, 600 GB of HDDs, PCI GF6200
