Syntax KT400 Board

AMD Athlon 2500+ XP

133FSB (266 Broke On Shipping :angry: ) Running 1462MHz OC'd 362MHz

1GB PC2100 DDR Ram (Offbrand)

40X Black CD-RW (Offbrand)

12X Dvd-Rom (Toshiba)

128MB NVidia Geforce4 MX 440SE (AGP)

40GB Generic Sony Hard Drive

HP PS/2 Mouse

15" IBM G54 @ 1024x768 @ 24Bits @ 85 Hertz

Quickcam Pro (Old Type)

Custom Black Case (Similar To Certain Newegg Cases That Retail @ 100$)

Multiboot MDK 9.2 and Windows 2000 Professional

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My dell laptop:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dell Latitude M233XT

233MHz Mobile Intel Pentium MMX

128MB 66MHz Sodimms

4GB Dell Hard Drive

16X Cd-Rom

D-Link 690TXD PCMCIA Ethernet Card (8139TOO)

13.1" TFT Generic LCD Panel @ 1024x768 @ 16Bits @ 60 Hertz

Mandrake 8.2

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My router:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NEC Powermate Professional

233MHz Pentium II MMX w/ 512KB Cache

64MB Ram

8.6GB Maxtor 7200Rpm Hard Drive

32X Cd-Rom

3Com Etherlink 900-TPO Ethernet Adapter (pci)

Netgear Fa310TX Ethernet Adapter (pci)

15" Generic Monitor @ 1024x768 @ 8Bits @ 60 Hertz

Slackware Linux 9.0

(^ DMZ Zone Redirect ^)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So far Mandrake Has been the best to me over all other distros, including Gentoo and Redhat. I use Slackware as a router because I don't need all the spiffy options using my non-existant ram. Even disabling services wouldn't matter, as I lost my copies of MDk 8.0 and 9.2 probably wouldn't install with that amount of ram. That router has significant uptime and I don't want to disturb it =p. This discussion is interesting because of the vastly different types of pcs and what they have all running Mandrake without a hitch.

"3Com Etherlink 900-TPO Ethernet Adapter (pci)

Netgear Fa310TX Ethernet Adapter (pci)"

 

WOW is that coincidence or what....

Exactly the same as my router!!!

I actually changed one 3com for the netgear just so I could be sure which was eth0 and eth1 !!!

Well, here goes:

 

Shuttle XPC SN41G2

Standard RAM 512MB, 333Mhz

Nvidia nForce2 with Geforce4 MX

Laptop I use for work:

 

Compaq Armada 7330

P166

80 meg

2 Gb hd

Cisco Aironet 340 PCMCIA wireless

ESS audio - not functional :wall:

S3 Aurora64V+ video at 800x600

 

I use this system for wireless coverage surveys and security testing.

Also use Open Office quite extensively on this system for reports, graphs, drawings, etc. to give to clients.

 

The system is also used as a general network workstation when I am in the office for email, word processing, etc.

 

It's a little slow but much better and more stable than with Windoze on the same system.

Mandrake 10ce - I have got it to run on :

 

AMD Duron 1Ghz, (256Mb RAM), EPSON C40SX - no issues at all.

 

Intel Celeron (256Mb RAM) - had issues with the USB printer, an HP PSC 1210 - but that was not an issue with the printer nor the machine but rather with kernel 2.6.3.

 

IBM T20 (700GHz) - I haven't checked out the Winmodem, but I suspect it doesn't work (as always). I have an unresolved issue with Wireless networking - I have a Netgear MA401 PCMICA wireless LAN adaptor & I can't figure out if the problem is PCMCIA or Wireless in general. I have had this working just once - when I inserted the PCMCIA card during the boot sequence.

256MB DDR RAM

Maxtor 80GB Hard disk
