Now installing Red Hat... 5.2

Yes, 5.2. No, not RHEL 5.2... bare "Red Hat Linux 5.2", from 1999.

The first CD of GNU/linux I ever had, and also, the first one I installed, on a 486 machine.

Installing it now on a QEmu machine... =)

I had CDs for Red Hat 6.x and 7.x ... probably tossed them during my move across the pond (US to Finland). Many other distros later (mainly Ubuntu and its variations) I'm using Fedora now that I've started working for Red Hat :P

I had a 5.2 CD, but never installed it. I used RH 6.1 through 8.0.

Waaahhh, real memories. I remember my first 6 CDs Linux boxed set with RedHat, Slackware, Mandrake, Suse and Debian, I think the last one was for docs and sources... Back in 1995-1996's ^^
