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:

I have to go… cvsup has finished. Time to build world.
