I've finally gotten life in my old SparcStation 10 and was thinking of getting some distro of Linux for it.

Do anyone of you know of a distro that will work on a low end Sparc?

It's a sun4m architecture, 50 MHz TI Processor, 64MB Ram, 1GB HD.

Installation over network must be possible due to the fact that I do not own a SCSI CDROM.

The Gentoo site has SPARC install instructions, so I guess there's that one.

I think every major Linux distro has a SPARC architecure port. Search the web.

Most distros have discarded support for the sun4m.

I'm downloading Redhat 6.2 'Zoot' now and hope it will work.
