Currently I'm trying to setup a Win 98 SE machine and one of the annoyances I'm having is downloading stuff from the internet without having to resort to another computer (mostly drivers, updates for my games, etc...). I'm currently using Retrozilla (using KernelEx) and it works most of the times. But some web pages cannot be opened (i.e Vogons) due to the browser not having the required security protocols.
So I'm thinking on installing linux on a separate partition just so I can have better compatibility browsing the internet...no need for multimedia, just being able to open pages properly and downloading is enough. So, can you guys recommend me a linux distro that:
1- Is light enough to run on an older machine (Athlon classic with 750mhz and 512mb of RAM)
2-Is compatible enough to open modern web pages (no need to display perfectly, as long as the links are accessible, its fine)
3-Can read/write FAT32 partitions (so I can download the files directly to the windows 98 SE partition)
I searched the forum, but the posts were kinda old and I'm not sure if they are relevant anymore.
Thanks in advance,
