Sure, I'll take that one off your hands (:
Considering Anthony has Cliff's first 486 .. hehe ..the rush is on.. (:
|well since we're in the mood, I have an old 486 just sitting around doing
|nothing, I think it's a dx 50 or 66, not sure, I'll include a 120 meg tape
|drive, it's got a real ISA drive controler, not that crapy built in stuff, a
|VGA card, It doesn't have a 3 and a half inch floppy, but it's got plenty of
|I also have an old CGA Monitor for grabs

|Hey cliff... hook me up! (:
||Well, since we're talking hardware...I've got a Compaq Prosignia
||486-DX33 up for grabs...yes, free.
||Features include (you'll love this :)
||486dx33 processor w/ 16Megs of ram (upgradeable with standard 72-pin
||EISA bus complete with Adaptec and Compaq SCSI Controller,
||3COM 10/100 EISA NIC (3c597-tx)
||some other strange eisa nic (tokenring/aui/10bt)
||Connor (I think) 2 gig scsi drive preloaded with slackware 7.0!
||This thing boots off the Adaptec scsi card w/ no problems. The 3com
||cards works fine but I don't know the kernel options to force it to boot
||in 10 base mode. The other nic is too strange to figure out. The
||Compaq scsi controller works, but not with Linux. Also, since the built
||in video card has 256Kb of ram, it is fairly useless as an
||X-terminal...trust me on that one :)
||All this powerhouse needs is a monitor, ps/2 keyboard and ps/2 mouse.
||...and a loving home.
||First reply gets this puppy, otherwise it's time for a sturdiness test
||of the old Compaq server case.
