Hello,

I would like to use my dns server and stuffs box, headless, with an LCD display so that I could write the information on teh LCD (http://www.still-becker.de/ebay/918_case//Lcd_display.jpg)via my remote control infrared.

But the pc is old, and which LCD display external favouribly or I could remove the cdrom-reader because it is not used.

Here is the beast (headless pc, no monitor):

It would be pointless to bother upgrading that beast, even if it is to add an LCD displaying temperatures and whatnot.

Just use Ebox or Webmin if you want an easy way to display information and configure it remotely.
