Distro for legacy hardware?
Just out of curiosity, as I seem to be dl'ing / burning a whole lot of install cd's that don't work...
What distro's are actually acceptable for 'legacy' hardware (Its being installed on an old Panasonic Toughbook CF-45 (P2, 128mb ram, 20gig hdd)
The *ubuntu's I can't seem to get past a kernel panic early in the boot - no matter what parameters I pass to the kernel (and I have slight concerns about the fact that each .iso is way bigger than what a cd can really hande...) Debian/Redhat similar but differing issues - never actually boot.
Slack/Knoppix/Suse work somewhat - but seem to have varying issues with the actual 'laptop' hardware... Dont close the lid cuz she'll never recover - or unexplained crash when you unplug the cord to go roam.
Seems the current supported hardware lists are pretty silly - if it's not less than 1yr old it's not on there it would seem.
