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
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
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?
