http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Yesterday, out of pure boredom, I grabbed my old ThinkPad R32 and installed Fedora 17 XFCE on it. Much to my surprise it installed without a complaint. This is a vintage machine with low specs compared to today's machines. I think I've maxed out the memory at 512M. Anyhow, although a bit sluggish I've been able to configure this machine, updated to the the newest kernel, etc. These are (approximately) the orginal specs as far as I can tell: PHP Code: Processor: Mobile Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 - M CPU 1.80GHz Memory: 512.0&nbs (HowTos)
