Wow, takes me back.
I remember having a hybrid SLS 1.0.3 / Slackware 1.1.1 system at one point. I also remember the a.out/ELF switchover.
I had a 386sx33 back then, with a whopping 4MB of RAM. I did run X eventually, but with little more than xterms open. All the real work was on one of the Sun machines elsewhere on campus.
Later I went to a 486DX33 with 16MB of RAM, and Slackware 3-ish. I snagged the RAM for the low, low price of $475. *cough*
