i just installed redhat7(guinness) on my comp.  custom install but basically a workstation.   have a athlon 650 in a AOpen AK47(i think,  the 
only Aopen slot A motherboard).  via soundcard built on,  196 megs of RAM.  20.5 gig HD(linux starts on the 15th gig or so till the end of the 
drive).  it runs perfectly in text mode but once i start up X it comes to a grinding halt.  it takes about 5 minutes to get a regular desktop loaded

fun than win98 =]
