update guys: my old 486 lappy is unfortunately too damaged to run anything
and I fould this computer with a 14" colour monitor, keyboard without number pad, touchpad instead of mouse, an i810 mobo,10GB HDD, 64 mb sd ram(and I can get 64 more for free from my friend) and a celeron 300 mhz processor. Its called an intel dot station, and was supposed to be a great budget computer back in 2002, but now its a cheap 90$ computer(in India).
I am thinking of buying it as a secondary computer, for my kid sister, who needs to surf the net, edit doccuments and presentations, play music, run Visual Boy ANdvance GBA emulator and play a few flash games(quite a light use really...)
can you tell me if this computer is worth it ? I am planning to install a light weight distro in it if I buy it.
and like the iMac :sarcasm: it has everything right inside the monitor. ecept the keyboard.
NOTE: Dont copy my commands, I just quickly typed them out, I think they are correct, but, just a warning. Take a look at the Low Memory install guide in Ubuntu Community Help.
Acer TravelMate 4021WLCi 1.6 Ghz Pentium M, 2 GB RAM, 40 GB HDD
Gateway M675 dual processor 3.0 Ghz Pentium 4, 1 GB RAM, 30 GB HDD
Windows OSX Linux
why not try in a virtual box?Again, my understanding of it is very superficial, so I might have that all backwards. I'd love to get to know it, but I'd have to invest in particular hardware, and I don't care to do that right now.

I'm looking for linux desktop OS for my old PC a Pentium II MMX 400MHz with 128 Meg RAM. I tried Xbuntu without success. Also I'm new to Linux.
Give antiX a try.
It is basically Debian Testing plus MEPIS utilities for easy and quick install.
Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways - the point is to change it.
