I did that, installed Mint on it using USB stick where I burned the Mint .iso file. Works fine but it gets the graphics adapter wronmg, which has been the case every time I install Mint…not an issue here.
I tried making an image of ACID on a USB stick but it won’t boot, which seemed odd. ACID was the first one I used in 2009 and still have my main repeater on 28599 running it.
As for older distros, I’ve been using Slackware since 94, and before that Yggdrasil distro (which went away but they published a great book then called the Linux Bible)
As for compiling, I’ve had nothing but headaches compiling the more recent source code. Broken Makefiles, etc. It was way, way better when the Duuuude was still with us. So maybe I’ll give that a try but I just know it won’t work…

I have installed Acid on a thin client a few years ago, never did use Dial on those.
What I would first sujest to you is to first mount a debian live cd image on the usb stick just to see if it boot a vanilla distro. then you can just install that distro and if not crazy N4IRS made a script or a list of command that will install the latest version of Allstarlink onto that system.
Been working with debian linux since 94. before the code name before packaging, when a real man could compile its kernel and everything was on source code. No binary or such things
At first I was running this on my old 386 that had a 40MB hard disk with a token ring/ethernet card no sound card and an external SupraFAXModem. And when the 486 DX4-100 was reelased in the spring 94 I got one and it only runned Debian on it till it got sent to the dumpster. Yup I am an old man…
