I recently upgraded my old 486/100 to Woody (stable). Debian is on a
1.5 GB partition and it has 28 MB of RAM. I have XFree-3 set up on it
and use IceWM instead of another environment. It is booting kernel
2.4.18 without any problem.
It's too pokey for a daily desktop system anymore and I really only
plan to do some ham radio stuff on it. Heh, I started with Slackware
Linux on that box back in '96 and even had XFree running from a 150 MB
