I got a really sweet deal on a computer:
- Dell Optiplex GX-260
- CPU 2.4 GHz
- HDD 20 GB
- RAM 512 MB
- CD ROM Re-Writable
- NIC 3COM
- internal speakers
- build-in sound card
- Windows XP
- MS-Office XP
Yes, that INCLUDES the original CDs for that software, still shrink wrapped! That alone is worth the CAD$150 price.
I’ve removed the HDD, put it aside, and replaced it with an 80GB drive. I’ve installed 5.4 on it and I’m going to replace a few other existing machines. It also has a built in NIC (in addition to the 3Com). I may turn this into the gateway for my WLAN.
Here’s the dmesg output:
