Well I think that the best way to approach this (installation)
is to take out the hard disk and put it into a machine with a CD rom
and install the base packages there. Transfer the hard disk back and it will
(That's what I've done in the past.......and it's always worked for me)
You might have to take care to install modules/kernel for the target hardware.
Slackware is good when you only have low memory
(I've got a 486DX33 with 8 Meg Ram and 120Meg hard disk.
It's been running as a dialup access server for two years now with Slackware
I've got Slackware 3.4, 4.0 and 7.0 which you are welcome to get copies of if
I used Ice as a Windows Manager with XFree86 on a 486DX66 with 16Meg and ran
Opera (technology preview ;-)
It "kinda" works for the basic functions and Ice was fast enough on the 486.
(The TinyX suggestions sounds like an interesting approach though,
let me know how you get on with that as I have some boxes like that which I
want to use for Net access (using modem)
