      Steps I took. I used my AntiX 17 install on one of my newer gear to make the bootable usb drive.
      I grabbed a old PLOP 4 cd I made long ago. Installed PLOP as boot loader to the hard drive. So I could boot USB.
      Inserted my usb drive into the back usb 1.1 port and booted up the iso.

      Trying this from the PLOP cd during a PLOP live run. Just gave me Press F1 key for help on a AntiX display screen with the logo. Pressing F1 was no use. Hence why I moved on to try installing PLOP internally to my hard drive. Which worked for a graphical install.

      Booting and installing off usb 1.1 is like watching paint dry. You think nothing is happening, But if you are patient. Things will start to load. Took a long time to copy files also. Big thanks to Anti for the un-install Adobe Flash Plugin in synaptic package manager suggestion. Qupzilla quit crashing with a illegal instruction error in terminal when I ran it there. I am not going to bother using Firefox or any browser needing sse2 support. My inxi report will show why on cpu readout info.

      Lastly. I now am using my 2 usb port/2 firewire combo pcmcia card so I have usb 2.0 ports. I will supply readouts on that below also. I have a 30 gig usb drive tranferring files presently on that pcmcia card. Here are the specs.

        Dang. Took me a minute to realize there was a woman in that shot. I miss my bike. Can’t balance properly anymore, and still have trouble driving straight in a car/truck.

            PLOP is still on the hard drive or you removed it after the system installation? If the former, plop runs every time you start your gear?
            4.9.75 kernel? No worry about the “spectre and meltdown” thing? I have upgraded to 4.9.87 or 4.9.91, for safety.

              Plop boot was replaced by grub install during the installation process.

              No worry about the “spectre and meltdown” thing?

              Not really. But kernel shown during this how to was default kernel I installed before all the hoopla and paranoia.
              I have since changed the kernel on it.

                Nice how you kept that ancient Thinkpad going. That machine is a gem and I used to own one till the thing died on me. My T42 still is chugging along as well.

                    That looks a lot like the Velorex sidecar I have for my Guzzi. In fact, the axle bearing wore out and the company only offered a new “upgraded” wheel/axle package that uses a trailer wheel. And, that also looks like what I see in your picture.

                      You know your motorcycles sir. Yes. I have the original axle for Velorix and the 4 bolt upgrade kit also. The original tire and axle seems not to handle the strain as well as the upgrade kit does. I am a tinkerer and may do some custom work way down the road where I modify the original axle to newer and stronger steel.

                      That little red truck is my Cushman Truckster. It is runner. 3 speed with reverse with a air cooled boxer motorcycle motor under the seat.
                      I use it like a wheel barrow. Like when I re-located all my bricks.
