Can I install Ubuntu on an old 486 machine?
I've seen a number of questions/comments here on ITWorld about Ubuntu, and I though it might be fun to play around with it and learn a little about Linux. I have an old 486 machine stuck in a closet at home. I understand that in general Linux does not require the latest and greatest hardware to run. Would my dinosaur of a 486 be sufficient to run Ubuntu? If not, is there a better distro choice for an old PC with a 486 processor?
