My first dedicated linux box was a 386-16 (probably an SX) with 4 megs of
ram running slackware.  It was far too memory starved and took an entire
day to install the packages I selected.  (I used a parallel port ZIP drive as my
install source, back when it would all easily fit on a 100MB ZIP disk, which is
probably a good thing because modems didn't go to 33.6 then)
