Hehe, I don't actually run anything on the machine yet. The disk in it
is an 600-650MB, so it's recognized. I intenden to shit in two smaller
disks and use it as a firewall, but I think now it's going to be tough
informing the bios that the new disks should be accepted. Perhaps I'll
use it as webserver or some other silly task. Hmm, just got an idea;
gott'a go look for a VNC server for OS2...
