I haven't posted in a while but every time I do I get good help. So here's the project. I have and old pentium 200 with 256 MB ram. What I want to do is to get a small enough version of linux to boot from a cf card. The goal is to have NAS and if possible play MP3s and movies from the hard drive.
Some of the small distros I have looked at lead me to believe that they access the hardware directly and will be able to overcome hdd bois limitations. Is this true for all, or most linux? I have looked a few different distros including freenas and ByzantineOS. Basically I am looking for suggestions. The MP3 and movie thing may be too much for the P200, and I would have to deal with the TVout thing to play movies on a big screen, but I thought I'd try to make use of the old guy. Any thoughts?
