    Before I can answer, I must know, Do you want just the comand line, or do you want the gui too?

    Well... It varie from version to version... For RedHat 7.1 you need
    • Processor Any x86 processor (minimum required); Intel Pentium or AMD-K6 (minimum recommended).
    • RAM 32 MB RAM (minimum required); 64 MB RAM (minimum recommended).
    • Hard Drive Free Space 650 MB (minimum required); 1.5 GB (minimum required for Workstation-class installation with GNOME and KDE; 1.2 GB with only one); 1.2 GB (minimum required for Server-class installation); 1.5 GB (minimum required for Laptop-class installation with GNOME and KDE; 1.2 GB with only one); 2.4 GB (minimum required for Custom-class installation if every package is selected); 1.2 GB (minimum required to use automatic partitioning); 3 GB (minimum recommended to allow space for updates and additional software).


    The lower the version the less the requirements if its a Win95 box... I recomment RedHat 6.2
    • Processor Any x86 processor (minimum required); Intel Pentium or AMD-K6 (minimum recommended).
    • RAM 16 MB RAM (minimum required); 32 MB RAM (minimum recommended).
    • Hard Drive Free Space 500 MB (minimum required); 1.2 GB (minimum required for Workstation-class installation with GNOME and KDE; 700 MB with only one); 1.7 GB (minimum required for Server-class installation); 1.7 GB (minimum required for Custom-class installation if every package is selected); 2 GB (minimum recommended to allow space for updates and additional software).


    Hope this helps

    I am running RH 7.2, and the GUI is Gnome on a 200MHZ Pentium, 96 meg ram, with 4 gigs of HD. It runs pretty good.
