Great, :) Time is everything.
by the way, another OS occur to my mind suddenly, it's ReactOS. Maybe some linux enthusiast could be mad at me, LOL.

ReactOS Hardware Requirements

    * 32MB RAM (NOTE: Debug builds may require 72MB of RAM, please use a release build on low memory systems)
    * IDE harddisk
    * FAT16/FAT32 boot partition
    * VGA compatible video card
    * Standard (PS/2) keyboard
    * PS/2 compatible mouse or Microsoft Mouse compatible serial mouse 

Furthermore, if you want to try TCP/IP networking, one of the following ethernet cards may work:

    * NE2000 clones
    * cards based on the Realtek8139 chipset 

Other cards might also work, if you provide the appropriate driver.
