Well some folks have installed and operate Linux over a serial port so that
might get you started. Unfortunately, I've never done it that way but I'm
sure that it's a possibility for you. There must be a howto on that method

Subject: Getting Started
Well I am a serious newby when it comes to Linux. I have a donor computer
(Pentium 166), it has a network and sound card. On my other computers I use
Windows 98 SE with JAWS (Eloquence) and a sound card. I don't own any
hardware synthesizers yet.
I am familiar with partitioning and formatting hard drives. I am not
afraid of working with the hardware. My research on the internet tells me
that I need to purchase a hardware synthesizer for the donor computer before
I attempt to install Linux on it.
Also I am not currently familiar with compiling kernels. However, I am a
computer professional (developer) so I should be able to pick it up.
I'll stop my rambling now and hope someone can point me in the right
My goal is to create a low cost web server for development and production
work. So far I heard that Speak Up may be the way to go.
