Quoting Bobbie Sellers (bliss at sfo.com):

>     1) can an old version of Linux be installed on this mess?

It could, but:  (1) What would you do with a machine having only 8 MB of
RAM?  (2) A machine based on a P75 CPU (Intel model P54C) would have
been sold around 1995.  It's now 15 years old.  That means it's probably
fragile and near death, _and_ any spare parts for it, including 16 MB
SIMMS for the 66 MHz front-side bus, are specialty items.

C'mon, man, be serious.  It's a dodo.  Let it die.
