|I myself just tried an install of xubuntu, ( x , standing for XFCE, as the DE ) |
this was on an AMD k6 550 mhz, machine with 256 mb of ram,
Depends on the latest bios version, if the bios flash, version is older than 2000 the newer kernels, won't boot,, with acpi enabled, If you have a newer version, bios, with those specs <<< I'd rather be able to install PC LinuxOS ,,, a bit more responsive and quicker than even xubuntu, there are so many different versions and I have tried quite a few,,, Ended up just using suse 11 on the machine, ( no bios update past 1999 ) and wouldn't shut down automatically ,,, ) had to press power button afterward,
Just Mentioning something to consider,,, in any attempt to install any of the Distros mentioned or future attempts,,,, ( tried quite a few, including DreamLinux ,,, ( Nice !!! ) ) Well good luck Huh !!!
MSI 845e mb 1 gb ram and a p4 2.4n running fedora 7 xp ,win 2000 advanced server and win 98 SE alot to learn and I know so little !!!!
