I just installed the free DR-DOS 7.02 (formerly called "OpenDOS" -
http://www.caldera.com/dos/ ) on a spare 386sx/16 with 4 MB RAM.
However, when I multitask into a second DOS session, the client
unfortunately bugs out on me with a "dos4gw.exe: Fatal Error - Not
enough memory".
Has anyone gotten the client to run in a background session with
only 4 MB RAM?

On a related note: which Linux-distribution could I install with 4
MB RAM? (I tried OpenLinux Base, but they meant it when writing "At
least 8 MB required" :))

Ciao
