I tried a long time ago to install Centos 7 on an Acer 2000 (32 Bits) with  
Net-install , loaded down a CD : The instructions are very clear : But I  
never had any succes or a result . I know it is a very old PC with 1 GB  
memory , I use it with , maybe you do not believe it  with an application  
of SCO Unix 5.05 ( self build CAD application written in C) . The gag is  
the bootloader recognects SCO .

Is there out ther some one who can help or advise ?

Kind regards ,
