Mike, got any P133 or higher ATX machines (standard clones) laying around?
I finally give up on this goddamned Compaq ProLiant 1500 (P-100, 96MB ram,
2.1GB scsi, 1GB scsi, scsi 8x cd-rom, all eisa and pci, Compaq proprietary
crap as usual). Slackware versions 7.1-8.1 and even the latest with the
2.4.18 kernel don't work happy on it. boot refusals, lilo getting stuck at
li randomly, intermittently working with hardware that is known good,
failing proper network configurations and connections and blowing up the
routing. I'd just dumped about 43+ hours into this thing and it still isn't
happy. Time to scrap it and dumpster the rest. Any luck on finding a nice
standard machine? Looking to do smtp, apache web serving, routing between
token ring and ethernet and file management. I know, i'm probly reaching,
but it's worth a try.
