I know this is a Linux group, but have you thought about a DOS boot disk
with Edit.
Its not pretty, but you can import the text file to Word, WordPerfect, Kedit
Just a thought.

Subject: [Nolug] converting 486SX - correction

On looking again, I found the message was "bad diskette boot record." I
took out the diskette and it booted, and I found how to bring up notepad
from the command line. But it takes an awfully long time to boot, then
bring up Windows 3.1, then bring up anything else--the meeting could be
half over before I'm ready! So I'd still like to know about a stripped
version of Linux and where to get it. Or can I extract it from Fedora or
some earlier Red Hat distro I already have? I do have a "business card"
version of some other distro, but it's on a little CD-ROM and I have no
means of reading a CD into the old system (my only external drive is
USB, which wasn't invented when the Ambra was built).
