    I think it's a RAM problem. Most 386DX and early 486 boards allowed
    32 MB (using 4 MB modules), Linux 2.6 should run fine on such
    a beast (386SX was limited to 16 MB address space). Later 486 boards
    using DIMMs, I think, supported 64 MB (with caching).

    Of course a "6 bogomips" 386 CPU isn't a speed daemon but in early
    1990s it wasn't any faster and people were using them commonly (and,
    I think, comfortably). IMHO for basic "SOHO Internet server" (mail
    and such) it could be fast enough running Linux 2.6.
