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.

It's so old and niche that it is not targeted. Firefox 2 could be an easy attack vector, but beside that, I don't think. Security issues come and go. Some -are- there since decades, but it's more likely that they are only a few years old.
