I installed gnewsense on a P2 with 128 MB of ram yesterday. Works great. What was new to me was the fact that the live cd found an old swap partition on the hard drive an activated it. I did not know it did that. I guess it helped me out though, since I am 64 MB shy of the minimum ram requirement according to Karl : )

My wife wants me to throw out the 486 machine that has been in the
basement for a long time. It has a copy of Red Hat (fedora 4) loaded
onto it, which runs ok. When booting it says something about an old
bios, nor does it have a lot of memory.

So I tried booting the gnusense live cd and got, after a minute or two,
this message:

I have no clue what this means. Probably is time to throw the machine
out. I'll try again with a newer, faster model...but, who knows, maybe
you're interested.
