hehe, me too. :-) In my case, it's a POWER!-CD LINUX (from Sybex) of
Slackware with kernel 2.0.32, X 3.1.1 - purchased with a magazine for
29,95 DM many years ago. The system it ran on was a 486 DX2 / 66.
And the system was quite usable, especially support for PS printer
and LaTeX were most helpful.
