[triangle-zpug] boot camp preparation

I'm not sure if this question belongs here, on the Plone list, or on the
special boot camp mailing list; please forgive me, this was my first
guess, and feel free to direct me elsewhere.
When I signed up, I asked Chris whether I'd need to set up Plone to run on
my laptop. The answer seems to be yes.
I've got an older laptop (about 5 years? Not completely sure - it's an
Asus L7300) with 64M memory, a Pentium Celeron processor, and a Red Hat
7.3 partition that I *think* I will attempt to outfit for use in the boot
I'm guessing I'll have to replace the OS with something more modern (I
looked through some Plone and Python install pages & it looks like I'd
want Fedora core 1, then Python 2.3.3, then I can set up Plone); but I
wonder if the system is going to be too slow to run Plone satisfactorily.
Any clues? I have gotten Zope 2.5 to run on it -- not too terribly
My question is this: should I even bother? Or will it be too slow?
I'm not that smooth with Linux installation/configuration (although I hear
it's gotten easier) and am not looking forward to spending the time to get
this together only to find it's annoyingly slow. I guess I could try
renting a more recent laptop (suggestions?). Truly, I'd just as soon
spend the time reviewing the "up to speed" information (or on my job...).
In a related note, how much do I need to get out of "Diving into Python"
before Jan 3?
OK, I probably should have sent this to the boot camp list, but I'd like
confirmation of that from someone.
