Most Compaqs, especially the older ones, use a soft-BIOS. If you are not
using the original disk-configuration anymore (which is probable), you have
to go to the Compaq website and search for all system downloads for that
specific model.

You will most likely be able to get a BIOS-configurator running from floppy,
after which you can do all kinds of stuff.

Subject: A small problem with my m0n0wall

Hello there.

I'm new to this program, and I got it to work today - I think.

I'm running m0n0wall on a Compaq Deskpro (something) 200MMX, 512MB = SDRAM,
Netgear and DLink NICS.

I haven't figured out how to get my FTP through the firewall but =
eventually I'll get there, probably some misstake I've done :-) I have a
small problem though. After 10 minutes of usage, it seems like = some
powersaving mode starts, and the m0n0wall machine bugs out. I get = heavy
packet loss (I think, at least connecting to the web gui takes a = butt load
of time and ping times when playing games go 2k+) and after a = while I
eventually get disconnected. Although, if I press any key on the = keyboard
so that the screen goes out of powersaving it all works again, = flawlessly.
I figure it has something to do with the machine and I = should check the
Bios - problem is I haven't been able to access it = hehe..

Is there anyone with some experience who got some answers/tips?
