You're getting me worried - my wife has been bugging me for months to install Linux on her 486-66 box! Probably the best place to get advice is on one of the comp.os.linux.* newsgroups. If you bought your RedHat Linux from RedHat, you are entitled to a couple of months of support from them. When I put Linux (RH 5.1) on my P-II machine, the trickiest part was configuring the disk partitions right. There were two different disk partitioning programs I had to use - neither could do all the necessary things alone. My setup uses OS/2's boot manager to select between OS/2 and Linux. All of that was described fully in the RedHat installation book. (I believe co-existence with an MS OS is trickier, though.) The toughest part of the process was learning how to use Linux once it was installed. Cheers!
