It was 1996 as I met linux first time. Now, 13 years later, I stumbled over the old CD again and could not resist temptation to run it.
It didn't require own partition then. It has been installed in a sub-folder on a plain DOS partition and was launched with a DOS batch file. It wasn't realy usable and suffered on memory shortage, as I had only an old 486 with 8MB of RAM, but it was an enlightening experience, which welded me to the World of UNIX until now.
