020800 The Dark Side of the Moon (Making a temporary system for internet)
6886 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.
