There are, but not being much of a linux lover I never even bothered trying to install one. I think they all very old, don't even know if they run X, nevermind Gnome or something that modern.

Personally I don't see what the point would be running CLI based 1.2 Kernal Linux on some 500 accelerator stuck onto a 25 quid 1200, when a new 525 computer would run Ubuntu Rapant Rabbit acceptably well.

But then I don't think I'd go onto a forum and slag them off for trying, so if you get it running, good for you!
