I've been trying for over 10 years to get Linux (usually Slackware) working on my old windows boxes. Finally got a reply from Pat saying "Yes, while this version (4 or earlier?) would run in 8MB ram, it needs a bit more to setup."
Occasionally could get one installed but couldn't figure out how to work it! (I migrated from CP/M-MSDOS-Win95-Win98.) Started trying LiveCDs (DSL, Puppy, Slack 7, Ubantu, VL4). Some of them found my Wireless Broadband connection. Then I couldn't download VL5.9 Standard iso though I could get VL4 to get as much as 520MB).
Yesterday, I had a friend download the iso and create a cd. After a couple of false starts with my partitioning, it installed on this PII(I) 500MHz box the first time and got me onto the internet.
Unfortunately, When I try to access the HOWTOs from the Vector-Docs icon, I get the following message:
"You don't have permission to access /vectorlinux/forum/viewforum.php"
Apache/2 Server at www.ibiblio.org
Do I have to be logged in with root privileges? Or is there something else that I have done wrong?
Sorry this is solooooong!
