Installing Linux how?

How I installed Linux on a machine and overcome all sorts of obstacles:

  • No USB/Network boot
  • Only had a very old bootable linux cd
  • The old linux distro didn't run modern binaries
  • There was no LVM or ext3/4/btrfs support on the old distro
  • There was no way to install GRUB on the old distro

But I did it anyway. :) The presentation is about how.

I use this story as an inspiration to tinker with old/weird hardware.

Requirements for attendees

Some linux knowledge recommended.
