Linux distros for very old PCs

Here are a few suggested distros if you still have an old PC lying around the house. Take note that for old machines, it’s more advisable to use kernel 2.4 not kernel 2.6 since kernel 2.6 supports preemption which some old processors don’t!

486s DSL ( Damn Small Linux )

P133 Puppy Linux or Mandrake 8

300Mhz Mepis

Good luck trying 😉
