It's good to know I'm not the only salvager out there
I have an AMD K6/II 350MHz with a whopping 192Mb RAM and 4.3G HDD, running DSL just fine. It's just a backup computer though. First it had Kubuntu, now DSL and I'm thinking about putting Xubuntu on it (need to stay in the ?ubuntu family .
Right now I'm trying to transplant my home server from an Athlon XP1700 into a Celeron 677MHz. The Cely is sitting in a rare Cognac micro motherboard that's maxed out at 128Mb RAM (very temperamental motherboard, only accepts certain single sided RAMsticks...), it has an 8GB HDD with Kubuntu 6.06 on it. Had to chuck a network card in and it's burning up the tarmac apart from the PCI PATA card issue I'm having with it
I'm also building a media PC (that's why I need the Athlon XP1700 procy ) that will have 256Mb RAM and 200Mb HDD. Not sure about the distro yet... Still have to look into MythTV.
My desktop PC is a new dual-boot AMD 64 - I love PC games so I sadly need XP... but find myself spending 90% of the time in my new shiny Kubuntu Feisty Fawn.
Sometimes I still boot up my old Amiga500, C64 or Cplus4. Nothing beats some good old-fashioned gaming Also I'm always on the lookout for my all-time dream computer, a ZX81 (probably won't put any OS on it, 1K RAM would be a tight fit even for Puppy, although I'm sure someone will try (or have tried?) to build a Linux box based on a Z80 processor)
