Please can you advise me on a Mint install for a Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600; 128 MB RAM, 10 GB HD.
This currently runs Windows 98 (refuses upgrade due to dll issues). I wish to retain this as a partition and will occupy about 5.5gb of the disk.
I have read a number of reports of unsuccessfull install attempts of recent Linux distributions on this laptop, but that older ones work fine. I have also had two failures with Xubuntu 8.1 and DSL so far this month. I have read of successful installs of Mint 4.0 Daryna on this Tosh and so I wish to use that as my starting point.
Desktop Software requirements are not great: browser, openOffice, filezilla, quanta plus, wireless internet connection setup and possibly Gimp (I don’t even want a mail client).
Please can someone recommend me a workable partition table for this device.
