I have a pentium II (that's right, pentium II) with a scant 200MB of ram. This was a high-end workstation in it's day. The machine currently runs dos on a raid array, and I need to pull some data from it. I figure my best chance at this is to use a linux live cd to copy the data to one of our active directory network shares (there is a network card in the machine).
Unfortunately, my linux skills are abysmal, so I'm not sure where to get started:
- Where should I look to find a linux cd that will run well on such an old system
- Since I'm likely gonna need to be command-line only, what do I need to do to configure the network card and mount the network share via the command line?
- Bonus points: exact syntax needed to copy and convert the entire volume for use in VMware server 2.0, but really just copying all the data should be enough.
