BasicLinux DOS version 3.50



BasicLinux, also known as BasLin, BL3, or BasLinux, is a lightweight Linux distribution optimized for old (386 - 486) PCs and laptops and that uses the commandline or a simple GUI.
It is based on a stripped-down version of Slackware 3.5 and uses an obsolete but small v2.2.26 kernel with busybox to provide a low-RAM Linux, capable of browsing the web, sending and receiving email, and functioning as an X terminal. It uses the JWM window manager (Joe's Window Manager).
It's offered in 2 versions: a hard drive installation that boots from DOS and a floppy drive install that uses 2 disks.
Both versions can be used with a 386 CPU. The hard drive-installable version requires 3 MB of RAM and 20 MB of disk space, plus a bootable DOS installation. The floppy version requires 12 MB of RAM.
Installed applications include:
IceWM
MagicPoint
Mutt
mp321
