Linux for i386
Just wondering if anyone knows of a Linux distro that runs on an Intel 80386 CPU, with 8 megs of ram (preferably 4megs).
I wouldn't expect a GUI x-system, but I saw one a LONG time ago that stated it would run on an i386, it would be nice to have .
It would be preferable if it could be shoved onto floppies, and then installed onto a hard disk.
This machine is an extremely cheap test bench, I'm open for all your recomendations
IIRC, FreeBSD was made in that environment.

could try one of those floopy linux "distros", take a look at
For linux I believe if you go back to RH 6 or so you can get it to run. FreeBSD 4.x will run on that no problem.
old versions of slackware or redhat is a good choice.
vectorlinux is great on older systems
Guys didn't you hear about BeOS ?
I'll never forget my first experiance with it running from only one floppy having full graphical interface with browser , Internet dialup , editors and ,...etc
knowledge is Power , Spread it.

As mentioned already, Vector Linux is great on older hardware and Debian would make a great setup, as well.
Thanks for the info, i'll look into all of these suggestions.
FreeBSD would probably be the best bet for this project, however BeOS also looks interesting
