Broken IBM 390E Now runs Antix

Posted 07-23-2009 at 10:30 AM by rokytnji

I own a old IBM 390E, 14.1 inch LCD Screen, Pentium 2, 366mhz, 64mb of ram, 3 gig hardrive. It had been collecting Dust in the computer room. It had been dropped by the previous owner on the left Hinge corner breaking the corner of the base to where the Hinge snapped loose and there was no plastic on the base to attach the hinge and screen to.

Back up Your Gnome Desktop and all Settings in Gnome.

Posted 04-06-2009 at 03:53 AM by rokytnji

Neat little tool. Yourgnome allow users to backup all things relative to Gnome on your Linux Machine. Packs everything into a tar.gz into your Home folder.

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.

Windows 95 is the main 0/S. The laptop has a bootable Floppy and a unbootable cdrom because bios doesn't give cdrom as an option, (even with compaqs firmware upgrades...
