Re: i still can't install linux!
8MB should be fine. I can't give much insight into your problem, but I can assure you that I have Debian on my 486 laptop which also has 8MB RAM and it runs just fine, although I have been warned about using x-windows as that will probably be /very/ slow, so i have not yet attempted using it. Doubt I ever will either.
