If you are a geek you might be interested:

I found a few of my old Linux floppies. Oldest kernel is 0.98.pl1-25 which was the very latest kernel at the time I made the floppy. Maybe I'll run into some older stuff if I keep digging.

Don't mean to rain on the parade void, but kernel.org have some of that stuff. :)

That's cool. I might have to download and play around a little. They should compile much faster than today's kernels, if they will compile at all. :) The disks I put up (most of them) are actually bootable where you can log in as root. Don't know if anyone remembers SLS. It was the first distro I used pre-RedHat.

You might be better off trying to install it on a 386 or 486.
