From there, I culled my computer parts. Anyone want a bag of older computer parts? If not, they go to recycling. (There are case fans, connectors, case parts, and other odd bits.)
I am putting SuSe Linux on this box. I may try Ubuntu. A complicating factor is that the old computer only has a CD drive, and not a DVD drive. My remaining Linux media is all on DVD. Doh. 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.
