No, the 486 is mine. It's been a project computer for quite some time.
It started life as a 386DX-25, but was upgraded to a 33 before I got
it..... I think it actually may have had the whole MB replaced. I
dropped in a coprocessor and then a TI 486 upgrade chip, and lots of
memory. The old 386 board had 16 30-pin simm slots!! I think I had
48megs of ram in it...... more than a lot of 486s. Finally, I located a
486 board that would fit this case. I had already retired the computer,
when I found the 486 MB, so I have been working on it very very slowly.
I keep on running into troubles with it crashing. Every time I think I
have it figured out, that wasn't it.... still freezes up. In testing, I
using Win95, but I plan to switch to Linux..... actually maybe Freesco,
and use it like a network. I don't have a network, but would like to
start a small one.
