Hi @all,

I have here an old and also slow HP D360/2 running an up to date Debian 
5.0 (unstable/testing) with running the debian kernel 

If anyone is interested in this machine for using it as buildd or porter 
machine he/she can have it for free.
The machine is at Bielefeld/Germany and can bee seen here:


Some documentations are available too.
If someone wants to have a first look online to the machine or just 
needs more informations, just ask.

Greetings, Jürgen Leibner
