Well, I'm definitley not a Minix junkie, I haven't even had time to get
around to putting it on one of my 8088's, but I think the current version
is 2.0, which I think will run on an 8086/88 if you have enough disk space
and a way to get all that stuff onto the drive. You would probably want a
286 to do anything with 2.0. For some strange reason, I downloaded Minix
1.1 to install(probably because it will fit on a bunch of 360k disks, but
1.1 doesn't do much, everyone told me to use 1.5). Try checking out the
comp.os.minix newsgroup.
BTW, is a real address? Sounds funny to me...
