I run RedHat 8 on an old 200MHz computer at home.

The only gotcha I'd have to mention is the window manager. KDE and Gnome
come as default with RedHat. These are real memory hogs and very slow on
old computers. I'd recommend you download a copy of blackbox
(blackbox.sourceforge.net) and install that.

Apart from that - I've had no problems with RedHat in a few years (my
first install was 5.1 - which came with a copy of Doom!)
