    some questions

    hey, i thinking about getting rid of Windows 98 on my crappy computer and putting a Linux OS on it. I used Linux over the summer but i cant rember what it was. I think it was Knoppix but im not sure. It had the right-click start menu and the dock.
    I tried Live CD of Damn Small Linux (which was close but it was only 50megs so somthing was missing)
    and Linspire which was too much like Windows

    the computer i'm trying to run it on:

    Pentium II 400mhz
    192MB
    7.82Gb harddrive

    Seems like a good place for starting further research.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
