[News] GNU/Linux Replaces Dead Router

Hash: SHA1

GNU/Linux: Replacing a Dead Router with a Linux System

,----[ Quote ]
| Enter an old Dell Dimension XPS R400 PC that has 
| been gathering dust in the closet. It has an 
| 80GB Western Digital IDE drive, a Startech 
| 10/100 NIC and 192MB of RAM in it. I received 
| this old PC from a client that bought a new, 
| custom built system from my company in October 
| 2007. He no longer needed the Dell and was just 
| going to trash it. Instead I convinced him to 
| let me wipe the drive, install Mandriva 2008 on 
| it and try to sell it on eBay. It did not sell 
| when I listed it. The client did not want it 
| back, so I just stuck it in the IT junk closet 
| with several other old systems and flaky 
| monitors. I decided to make this old Dell PC 
| into my ânewâ router. Since it already has 
| Mandriva 2008 on it I figured I could use that 
| to get routing going and then upgrade the 
| Mandriva later.
