Re: a basic kernel //or rather simply an old one
Thanks for the support.
let me more specific:
I want to play with the kernel, and really understand how it works.
I think that the best way to do that is to read the sunsite docs, and play
with an older kernel that wasn't as complex as the new ones.
I need the oldest posible kernel, that have simply
the ability to be installed in the first place without too much
required to start. it possibly means support for ext2, ?compatible? lilo,
and most of all, a debian distribution.
where can I find antique distributions?
