Re: [seul-edu] I NEED HELP

Get a Pentium Class machine.  You don't need to spend much. 10-20% of the price of a new machine should suffice.  Buy as much add-on memory as you can afford.  This is not a Linux thing.  All intelligent OSs will take advantage of the memory to cache data and accellerate transactions.  You may want a fastish cdrom for installation of software, but it is not essential.
A burner is good if you want to download iso images and burn them.
I have run XFree86 on a 486.  It was not fun even using a lightwight windows manager.  Everything should be fine on a P1.

Hi Maxwell,

Do you have a computer to install Linux on? If so, what are its
specifications? Do you have some CD's to install it with?
