Posted 12-04-2008 at 05:53 PM by rokytnji

Compaq Armada 1540DM running Windows 95 and Linux Puppy 2.15CE
L4Linux has been wanting me to post some kind of article on here and I think I finally came up with a rare one. My Wife picked up a Compaq Armada 1540 DM , Pentium I 144mhz, 64 or so mb ram, and the hardrive is 2gig . Google Compaq for the specs.
