Being the cheap sod that I am and not wanting to waste the earth’s resources I have set up some 386’s and low end 486’s as workstations. They work really well at run level 3 (a shell) but struggle rather running KDE. Are there any basic gui / window managers that will run under X but not over stretch the capacities of these old machines? It seem a waste to just junk them. Can I specify a particular windows manager to load to a particular workstation.? All these older machines have assigned IP addresses and are identified by their MAC address.
