I have copied all the files off it so GOODBYE Novell ...
So now the Difficult Bit What distro do I Use
It recognizes old hardware well.
It only needs to store mail and maybe ldap or ftp
So I don't need X...
The Hardware Spec Is AMD 586Dx4 100 66BogoMips WOW 32Mb EDO RAM Floppy
ISA BUS NO PCI 3c509B network card
Internal video mouse 2 ser par 20Gb Hdd (I found a newer disk)
External DVD It will Plug on The Ide CABLE for initial Install
Caveats the install has to boot from floppy
There is no pci bus I think the Board is Pre PNP
