My first pass was Minix2.0 {very fast on a 386/16 with 5mb) and
used that to download Linux. The first linix install frm CD was on
a 8mb 486slc/25 with an 80mb IDE disk. The current Linux toy is
486/133 with 16mb and a 2.1mb disk from the Caldara Openlinux
2.3 CD. Most of the bells and toys are installed and it's big but
useful. A bare bones install still fits on a small disk with useful
room if you forget all the packages and Xserver.
