If you set up some swapspace (I'd use toms root boot to do it), DSL should work, albeit slow.

At least if it's a 486DX. If you have no math coproc, you're out of luck.


They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.
