Today my new slackware box was born
well it's not really a box, it's more lying about on the floor in bits; but all connected and working (I power on with a piece of fusewire, for those who wondered, all very arcane and good fun).
It is a pentium 200 ... plus other bits and so forth. I've seen quite a few of them, some with hs/fan, some bare. Mine is bare. I ran it for 3 hours today, installed slack, no instability. But I touched it after I shutdown and it was hot enough to burn me. I think it must have been 50 - 60 degrees, perhaps more. What is the accepted wisdom here for a pentium 200 ?
