Re:[K12OSN] using really old PCs as clients



Hi Raju,

Here is a very nice setup for older pc's that have nics stuck in them
and has a minimum whopping 10mb HD! ed_on_hd.ima is an image you put on
a floppy,boot your old pc's from your floppy disk,and this floppy will
wipe the hard drive,auto detect the nic inside,and install the correct
drivers,for the nic. Takes about 5 mins per box once you get the routine
going! This setup at least lets you use " what you have" already. If
some of the boxes do not have floppy drives in them simply temporarily
hang a floppy on each one to setup the hard drive then remove the floppy
again. the only downside to this setup you hear the HD's whinning,which
some of them old animals the HD's really sing,,,:).

Take Care,
