I'd have to concur. If you are happy with the machine, then get an OS that
was written for it, like RedHat 1.0 or 2.0 - quite nice, even if they
didn't have "jove" (my main complaint about RedHat, till I moved to Vim).
See can you get yourself an old Slackware 2.0 CD or something, and some
more RAM. At least 8MB!
