I have booted Puppy on a 486DX2-50, with various RAM and HD.
With 512MB CF-IDE and 64MB ram, booting with linld 0.97 takes 20 seconds to process image.gz, and Gujin 1.2 takes 80 seconds -- 60 seconds difference. The overall time difference is slightly worse -- linld takes 148 seconds from the DOS prompt to Puppy Desktop, Gujin takes 218 seconds -- 70 seconds difference.
Puppy does run on a 486, including the GUI -- if you are patient, and don't ask it to do anything very complicated.
