How would running something like PuppyLinux compare to running NT4 on a
system like that? When you say 13 year old PC's what does that mean in terms
of processor and memory.

I recently listened to a podcast where a guy took a pc that was about 10

old (plus another 5 years).. I'm not so sure. I'd be interested to know
