Pollo Loco recently posted the following question, regarding an 'old' Pentium II machine:http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,69130.0.html
However; his question seemed to spur an interest in trading old computers and parts, instead. My own particular wish, for instance, would be to obtain any of the following 'AT'-formfactor
motherboards, should they be in good working order:
Asus P2B-B, and/or P2-99B;
Tyan S1830S ('Tsunami').
Along with certain associated parts, such as:
nVidia FX-5500 AGP video cards;
Creative SoundBlaster Live! PCI sound cards;
Micron/Crucial PC-100/133 256MB 'low-density' CAS-2 SDRAM;
'Slot-T' Socket-370 ('Tualatin' series) - Slot-1 'slotket' adapters;
My reason lies in the twin facts that I do have a number of 'classic' old 'AT'-formfactor cases and power supply units in good condition, and also that the particular parts listed are indeed capable of running PCLinuxOS 2010 surprisingly satisfactorily - even with KDE4, and
with compositing enabled as well!
So. Does anyone else have a similar desire, then, to startle the unwitting 'normal citizenry' into fits at seeing antique beige boxes being dragged headlong, kicking and screaming all the way, straight into the twenty-first century? ;-)
