trying to build 486 freesco router box
still new to linux, finally managed to get my slackware 10.0 box connected to my roommates' network by manually removing one mac address and then adding my computer.
this is a pain in the ass.
found out that i can use linux as a router. i decided this would be -fun- so i collected some old parts (486 board with ISA, old 32pin ram, 255.9mb hdd, etc) and i'm going to build a freesco system.
several problems: no mouse, no floppy drive
i'm wondering if i can set up freesco through my slack box and then put the hdd back into the 486.
any help would be great. thanks
