K...  Looks like a great system u guys are messing with here...  Seems perfect for a little project I got...  I just need to run a system that can handle 3-4 instances of a prog in a old PC...  I have a...

Cyrix 180Mhz
40MB's Ram
Blank\NoPartions 796MB HD

They told me to find a good Linux...  I think DSL is it..  But....

When I boot the CD up...  The following happens...
It boots to the "Boot:     " screen and no matter what I enter(ex. Nothing; KNOPPIX; KNOPPIX NoSCSI; etc...) it loads two things and then a little pinguen comes up on the upper left side of the screen with a little white square that stops blinking shortly after...  Then nothing else..

I tried finding CFDisk to make a couple of linux partitions but I never found it...  I did make a partition with FDisk to see if that would work but nada...

Any help will be appreciated...  If possible...  PM me... If u can help through a messenger prog...  I am on all 4 (Yahoo;MSN;ICQ;AOL) messengers at once..  Using Trillian..
