The hardware required to run ZipSlack does not differ that much from
the full Slackware Linux distribution. Below is the minimum hardware you
need in order to run ZipSlack.
- 386 processor
- 16 megabytes of RAM
- 100 megabytes of hard disk space on a FAT or FAT32 filesystem
NOTE: The additional RAM is needed to compensate for the
generic kernel included in ZipSlack. There is an addon for ZipSlack which
installs an 8 MB swap file in the \LINUX directory. You must have this
addon if you want to boot ZipSlack on a system with less than 8 MB of RAM.
