Re: Required Hardware?

I just installed Debian 2.2 on an 386 20 mhz deskpro w/10 mb of ram.  I
found the install was slow and very slow to boot up, but with a custom
kernel it boots much faster and the performance of the system is
significantely increased.  At <http://www.linuxdoc.org>, under
mini-HOWTO's there is one dealy with low memory.
