Hello all, and listen...
I try to install Linux OSs on old desktop computers to make them usefull again for Internet browsing, some office related work, some music playing....
The computers I had so far: Pentium MM, PII, PIII, CeleronII...All were upgraded to 128MB RAM.
The distros I tried: Ubuntu and derivatives (6.06, 7.10, Mint, Fluxbox, Fluxbuntu, Crunchbang),
To all these machines I was not able to install one of the above OSs.
But VectorLinux VL 5.9-std I could install!
Although Vector Linux is not really for beginners, the installation procedure is clear and staight forward and it offers easy to understand tools to configure the system.
The posibilties to expand the system seem to be endless, but in my opinion, I think the average computer user doesn't need more.
Thank you, to the creator(s) of this very versatile and useful distro!
I make these statements although I'm technically not educated enough to know if some tweaking could have helped to install one of the above mentioned systems.
And, this is not intended to be a discrimination of these absolutely great Linux Systems at all!
