I'm using the 'SLS' version of Linux and it is very good!

If you want to use X you need a supported video card or you will be stuck
with 640x480x2  (monochrome VGA).  I use a cheap ET4000 card and it will
do 1024x768x256 but is difficult to read on my cheap monitor.  It is fast
and legible at 800x600x256 though :-)

My system is a 20MHz 386SX with 4Mb Ram and 100Mb IDE disk - cheap and
cheerful, but it *does* the job ok for me.
