The Linux Box

It actually works…

Found yet another way to waste time! Had an ancient PC (circa 1993) sitting around doing nothing so I decided to try and install Linux on it. Much to my amazement, I actually got it up and running in a reasonable amount of time and it is working quite well. Even got FTP and Web Servers installed on it. And have it talking to the other PCs on my home network. I used SlackWare Linux and am really impressed with it…especially since it costs absolutely nothing when downloaded over the Internet. So stay tuned to hear about the further adventures with “Elwood the Linux Box.”

Super Bowl tomorrow! Hope the ads are entertaining as there are more of them than anything else during the game.
