I don't have linux to run "uname -p"
I have a 433 Mhz Dell Celeron/MMX, with 127 mg RAM (128 but I think 1 is used by PCI modem card or video card). That's what shows on Norton's Checkit Diagnostics.
I have 40 GB hardisk space with less that 5 Gb used by Windows 98 SE that I am running now. The person I bought it from said it is a Pentium I but the 433 Mhz makes it faster, about Penitum 1.5.
I want to install to my harddisk, dual boot, and I don't care about running live CD.
I need to run OpenOffice 2.0 so I am compatible with Word and Excel through email with the rest of the world.
I find it a little bit hard to believe that I will have any trouble running OpenOffice under Linux if I'm running Microsoft Office under Windows 98 SE. That's slow but can OpenOffice be worse than that?
That's where I want to get to but which version of which Linux will do it for me?
