SLS was what got me started with Linux in '93 - memories of lots of
floppy disks, one of which would nearly always be corrupt and result in
an aborted install :-) I don't believe install-from-hard-disk was around
then, and even if it was I didn't have the drive space...

I remember I had a 486/33 with 8Mb RAM and an 89MB drive back then,
which was quite a well-specced system for the time (the people I bought
my PC from messed up and sent me a 486 for the price of the 386 that I'd
actually ordered :-)

have a look at:

FWIW, I should still have a copy of the install media backed up to QIC
tape, but I'm not sure what version that'll be.

I remember thinking how cool Linux was because it had xearth and Windows
didn't :-)
