    Question Slackware: is it slack enough?

    Hey: I am on my first steps of being freed from Micorsofts grasp! I recently downloaded the files from www.slackware.com! I still need to create the floppy disk! But I was wondering about onething:

    I have a pos computer that I want to test it on before I put it on my main computer. Slackware's minumims are:
    Hardware Requirement
    Processor 386
    RAM 16 MB
    Disk Space 500MB
    Floppy Drive 1.44 MB
    edit**
    **** lol no! dam I'm really confused about these old processors! sorry. Since I have a 333; can it still run on it?

    I hope you're joking and really not that stupid.

    A 386 is a Processor, not a speed. A 386 is like 20 MHz or something....

    Nope, it looks like you're going to have to upgrade to 386 MHz. you might want to grab about 1 Gig of RAM while you're going for it...... YES IT WILL RUN ON THAT! DAMN THAT'S LIKE A PORCHE FOR SLACKWARE.

    Umm no freaking......Sorry that I didn't read the processor history book and thus making a mistake. But onething you don't know how to spell porsche and I guess you wouldn't know what BMW means in german-? Bayerische Motoren Werke ! auf englisch: Bavarian Motor Works!

    das ist mir egal= doesn't really translate into english all that well: so what I meant by it was " that its all the same to me" and/or "I don't care". You choose!
