@Redrumloa:

You should seriously consider Debian, it does not have quite the same high requirements for the install. I also will allow you to do a networked install. Though you will ofcourse need the boot-floppies or boot-cd to get it booted first.

All i really need is a text console with basic networking services and some internet software such as FTP, IRC, Lynx etc. All text based. Ideas?


Then what you need is muLinux

YOu can't get much more minimal! :-)

Update:
I went to the local computer show(swap meet/flea market) and purchased a FIC Sahara 3810 Terminal for $60. It's TINY, 500Mhz Celery processor and I threw 384MB ram and a 20GB HD into it. I'm setting it up ATM. After it's set up I'll hide it off somewhere. It'll be a dedicated slave to the C128D as a HD and internet services. Stay tuned..

Oh yeah, I'm still going to tinker with a minimalist instal on one of these laptops when I get a chance..
Someone has to state the obvious and that someone is me!
