Question real newbie need to know...

hi everybody,

so as you know i'm a real newbie in the unix world and i wanna know if i can install unix (not linux or other derived) on a toshiba T1950 portable computer ? It is a 486 cpu with 8mb ram, monochrom screen, and a 200mb hd, no cdrom... The latest version of unix is not necessary, a very old one is good too, if i can still use it with internet etc

I also wanna know how big is the last version ?

Thanks for your help !!

Well, u can try though.

I've installed OpenBSD2.7 on 486 worked fine for me, and minimun install was like 90Mb or smth.

Good luck
