Linux won’t work on the TL2 unless you get a
Make-It-386/Make-It-486 CPU for the TL2.

But you can run Minix, which includes a C compiler, and
other C compilers are available for it.

The latest version of Minix is free, and runs on the TL2.
Subscribe to comp. os .minix and ask questions (they’re a
friendly group like comp. sy s.tandy is).

You can find it at: ftp. cs. vu. nl under
/pub /minix/ 1.7.0/ i86/*

There are plenty of README files on that site, so read up
and it will show you how to install it onto 720K diskettes,
then the hard drive.

FYI: Linux is a product of Minix source code. The only
reason Linux was able to use the Minix source code is that
Linux is completely free.
