Hell yeah it supports 386.
If you don't have alot of HDD don't install things you don't need.  I used
to run mailman, a webserver and a mailserver on my 486.. (hows that for
"propaganda") heck you would be amazed with what you can do with a stripped
down kernel on a floppy disk.
But hopefully if this is someway related to mailman (as you are writing to
it's listserv) I wouldn't expect too much performance..  When more and more
people started using my list, the 486 eventually died and I had to upgrade
it to a pentium.

the propaganda says that they can be run  on a 386.If the cds with the
operating system are up to gig and more how then can they operate from a
