Ah, memories of discovering that a SCO install from CD was three times
faster than tape, and then finding out that ATA CDs weren't supported.
To get back to the original point, I think Tim was more saying he was the

started playing with linux.
I do remember a special version of slackware for 1.2MB floppies...
