Well, at a minimum, an upgrade to 6.2 would be recommended. RedHat will be
supported 6.2 with security fixes for quite a while; the same can't be said
of 6.0 or 6.1.
You could upgrade to 7.1 or 7.2...
You could switch to Debian; this is a very nice option, in fact. :-)
So, it's a P166 with 32MB of RAM and an ATI Rage card. What do you want to
*do* with it? Act as some type of server? X? Do you want GNOME or KDE?
Do you just want to use it to ssh to a shell server someplace else where you
run mutt? Netscape, basic mail, ssh, instant messaging and little else?
General "play around with Linux and learn things"?
