Got one of these lying around gathering dust. Seems that there have been
efforts in the past to get these up and running m0n0; found some postings
from 2003 about N0rwall. Anybody out there doing this more recently?
Willing to share some guidance? I'd like to get some kind of positive
feedback before I go out and buy even a stick of RAM for this old clunker.
It appears to be an x86 with a VIA chipset. It's got a WAN port, a LAN
interface on a 7-port switch, an addon Netgear 3rd Ethernet interface, and
a 8MB CF card. From some reading I've found that the single PC100 RAM
slot (empty now) can be used to augment the 12MB of onboard RAM. It has a
VGA output on a header internally but no keyboard/mouse ports. It does
have a serial port though.
Seems like I may be abale to get it running if I:
- add a 64MB RAM stick
- Use the generic PC image modified to use a serial console
I think I'll need a larger CF card to support upgrades too, right?
