I unfixed it myself redux

Laptop for traveling for Dubra & Associates

I took three laptops to the recycler yesterday.  Finally, I could let go.  The last one was a Compaq Armada pentium 1, that also could just do everything.  This picture shows:

  • External CD/Harddisk I could connect using the Parallel port.
  • Network card dongle and Avaya wireless card
  • Connected to AOL, Opera, PCplus to a cisco router

One of the final tests was to see if I could get Linux up.  I finally found one that would work: Basic Linux 3.5 using the 2.2.26 kernel.  I got it loaded, but internet communication was going to take a lot of work to recognize the network card.  This weekend I prepped a Dell Inspiron with WinXP and Ubuntu.  It has all the facility and access.  All I needed to do is download the latest updates.
