    small distribution

    Does anybody know where I can find an operating system that will install and run on a 386 laptop? I need to be able to install it from floppies and would be willing to use a Command Line Interface. I have 4M of ram and 140M of Hard drive, and a black and white screen. I'd like to get the modem working for something like Pine in linux, but it isn't nessecary. Any help is appreciated.

    Menuet is fits on one floppy, and is very good. For further Floppy OS's do a search on "Linux on floppies" on google.

    I searched "small linux distribution floppy" on Google and found these:

    I only scanned the results quickly so probably there are lots of repeats.
