Up until recently I was doing lots of productive work on a laptop
with almost exactly the same specs: P133, 48MB RAM, 1.3GB hard drive.
In fact, it was my first Linux box; I loaded the CD I got with a
book (Slackware 3.5, kernel 2.0.34) onto it and was able to include
everything. Later I moved up to Slack 7 (kernel 2.2.13) - I had to
omit some of the more obscure packages, but I was compiling Linux
versions of my production software and even running X (fvwm). I
shoved in a PCMCIA NIC and presto, it came up on my LAN. It's still
tucked into a corner, and if I have the need I'm sure I could bring
it up and use it for something...

I found this link: http://www.yqcomputer.com/

Which file should I download to get a bootable version of Slack 3.5,
and, more importantly, is this version of Slack easy to install and
does it have a GUI interface, or do I need to learn commands in Unix?

Thanks,
