Hi,

I have an old 486 PC with Windoze 95 .. rather than throw it away I want to install Linux and give it to my daughter for education ...

Can I install Fedora ? What is the best linux to install on a 486 PC/540 MB Hard disk/32 MB RAM ?

All help is appreciated

You can get DSL (Damn Small Linux) to run on your hardware. Here's a link to an account of it running on similar hardware:

The problem is that your daughter (and you) will have to deal with a pretty Spartan user environment. You could also try other liveCD based distros (<http://www.frozentech.com/content/livecd.php>) but I doubt you will be able to find anything much better than DSL given your hardware constraints.
