and that's fine, but it's increasingly unreasonable to try to run a modern general purpose OS on hardware that's 20 years old. if the driver is nostalgia, something like freedos may be a better fit, or something like netbsd that makes support for obscure hardware a goal, or just sticking with the original OS. running a suitably stripped-down debian install is possible, but enough work that it's just not the best tool for the job.
