I continued on my cleanup quest. To go forward, I went backwards. I went out and bought a case for my unused motherboard. I then put odd parts into the case. That worked. Yay. AMD 1700+ is alive. I then cleaned up that mess.

As a workaround, I'm doing an internet install of SuSe. I left the thing running this morning. We increasingly have SuSe here at work, so some familiarity is good.

I am also considering Ubuntu (breezy badger).

Finally, I plopped more crud onto eBay. I sent out the Ice Age cards that I sold off. Slowly, this stuff is moving out of the house.
