Here is the configuration that I have. Have run Redhat 6.2, 7.3 with it.

Processor: AMD K6-2 500Mhz
MotherBoard: AOpen AX59 Pro (Uses VIA VT82C598) 1MB Cache onboard, 1 AGP,4 PCI,2 ISA, 2 USB

RAM : 192 MB (64MB PC100 Micron Inc. + 128MB PC133 NCP)
Hard Disk : 8.4 GB Seagate ST38410 IDE 5400 rpm 512 kb buffer
Ethernet: SURECOM EP-320X-R 100/10 Adapter Uses Realtek 8139C
Modem: Zoltrix FMVSP336i 33.6kbps Internal Hard modem (ISA)
Sound: Xwave QS3000A Soundcard
VGA: SiS 6326 8MB AGP
MISC: Philips 105S Monitor
Op Sys: Windows XP+98+Redhat 7.3

With RH6.2, the audio didnt work even with ALSA drivers built into kernel and the Xserver identified only 1MB Video RAM instead of 8MB. The display was limited to 800x600*256colors*60Hz. The display problem was bcoz of BIOS which was solved by BIOS Flashing.

With RH7.3, every thing was going laminar, untill recently the system got corrupted because of poor installation media (I think) so currently I am looking for a reliable installation media. :roll:
