Linux I've described how to refurbish mature computers in several articles. The emphasis has been on machines in the four to ten year old range -- Pentium IV's, D's, M's, III's and Celerons. But what if you have a really old computer, like a Pentium II, I, or even a 486? Can you use it for anything worthwhile? A vintage distro named Damn Small Linux answers "yes." This article describes DSL and tells how to make 1990's computers useful again. Screenshots follow the article.

@Neolander... Stay tuned. I've already written an article on this topic but it probably won't be posted for a couple months. Meanwhile, thank you for your many perceptive comments, from which I've learned a lot. -- Howard Fosdick
