Hi there,

Iam A Windows User at the moment, want to start using Linux.
I have an old 486 Notebook with 250MB HD 20MB Ram 800x600 DSTN Resolution. It does not have a CD Rom. There is A 3com Network Card Adapter in it.

I want to surf the web with that small Computer, and maybe Install things on it like ICQ, or a Email programm. The thing is I want to do it with Linux, but I dont know so much about it. I have Installed Red Hat and Suse before, but this distris do not fit on that System of course :-)

So does anybody know a small distribution what can be installed on it.
It has to be easy since I do not know to much about Linux.
Maybe there is a good HOW TO somewhere.
I have installed the fly 4 Linux Routing service before on that Computer, but that is maybe to small. I have to have a graphical user interface where I can run a browser or something...

Are there any suggestions what to do ???
