I think I performed my first Linux install in 1995. I know it was done using the slackware distribution. It took about 35 floppy disks which I downloaded at the University of Kansas Herb Harris Computer Lab. I installed on my only computer which was a 386sx with probably a 20 megabyte hard drive and about 8 megabytes of RAM. I'm pretty sure it was only 8MB because I remember thinking that if I had 16MB then I could run X Windows.
