I have just been given a Computer circa 1998

Mesh Elite Titan

Asus P2L97a motherboard with Intel P11 233mhz processor

2 x 32mb sdram with spare slot, onboard graphics, ISA Creative soundcard

Cdrom and Floppy drives

No hard drive (rated for Ultra dma 33)

Would it be feasible to add a harddrive + Ethernet card and use this for web browsing connected to a Broadband router.

I do not have an OS and thought I would try Linux in one form or another although not had any experience with these systems.

I would be grateful for any advice (even bin it) thanks. Britto

Thanks AndySD,
Anyone have any ideas for an OS have seen lots of different Linux versions on the net, tried downloading Knoppix but got 620 out of 699MB and timed out :-( probably need a download manager?
