Paul Sherman has announced the availability of Absolute Linux 12.0.2, a light-weight modification of Slackware Linux with IceWM:
586 support has been reimplimented in 12.0.1 and above, (kernel was not compiled with 586 supposrt in 12.0 release.) This means you should be able to install 12.0.2 on an old Pentium-1 or a K6-2 machine. You will need at least 48MB of RAM. Suggested minimum hardware requirements are a PII and 64MB RAM. If things run slow, turn off the auto-mounting option.
Auto-mouting is unique in that devices are not automatically mounted, but icons of the devices appear in a panel hidden UNDER the taskbar. When you want to look, click the arrow on the right of the taskbar, that bar will slide off to the right, and connected devices appear on the lower panel. Single-click on an icon for the default action, else right-click for a menu. (For example, an audio CD will have "Play", "Rip" and "eject" listed.)
