Slackware Linux 1.1.2 on a 386sx40 (English)

In this video I'm going to install Slackware 1.1.2 on an old 386SX40 using floppies. The goal is to get the base linux installed, along with networking and X support.

It's one thing to install linux on a virtual machine, but to install it on a 30 year old computer is another. So join me on this journey back in the past, to the beginning of 1994 when Slackware 1.1.2 was released, and the entire kernel source tree could still fit on a single 1.44MB 3.5 inch floppy.

Трёхдёмовый дисковод был (был даже пятидюймовый) где-то в 1996 г. Linux я увидел только в начале 2000-ых.
