020800 The Dark Side of the Moon ( Making a temporary system for internet )
lost it's hard drive. My wife and my daughter have been using Celeron 900MHz
system with Windows XP on it. I could use it too but my daughter
frequently used it for mail transaction with her friends these days.
I like MCA systems. but there is no room for PC Server 500, 9595
array system and so on. PC720 6860 is on my desk for BBS access,
PS/55E 5538 is on the desk too for some test. My wife's PC is sitting behind
me with it's associated 17" monitor. I have to take care about power consumption.
Got a 60GB IBM drive, Celleron Tualatine
1.2GHz, slot1 to socket 370 converter made by PowerLeap and 128 MB
SDRAM DIMM, I installed Windows 2000 on the Dell. Network setting
was a bit difficult for me 'cause it seemed very different from Win
NT. For this system I had to use on-board Ethernet because
I already planned and ordered ADSL service for internet
connection ( it should have been done with 6886 and EFD4. I don't have
Token-Ether Bridge 8229 nor I have enough knowledge to construct a Linux
machine for this purpose.
