Introducing myself.

Hello everyone,
Just dropping in to say "Hi". I noticed that it seems be obligatory to post your hardware and list of Linux related stuff, so here goes:

Started by purchasing a book that came with RedHat 4.2, Debian xxx and Slackware xxx a long time ago. Installed Slackware on a Packard Bell 486/33 since the other two didn't recognize the 4X CD Rom correctly. Later moved to a job where we started from RedHat 5.1 and used 5.2, 6.0, 6.1, 6.2, 7.0, 7.1, 7.3, 8.0 and 9.0 in succession. We also used Slackware 9.0 in one or two boxes (when RH 7.0's installer didn't recognize an I2C that 6.2 did!) We had approximately 140 boxes and around 75 were RH, and the rest were mostly FreeBSD with a few OpenBSD boxes thrown in. Now that I've been laid off, I don't have access to those boxes much, but I still have some hardware of my own at home (yes I collect a lot of hardware, but these are the ones that I have on at most times):

0. soulburner - 2.53 GHz Pentium III, Windows 2000
1. battlestation - 1.4 GHz AMD, Fedora Core 2
2. ironmaiden - Dual Pentium III 550 MHz, RedHat 9
3. deeppurple - 3.0GHz Pentium IV laptop, Fedora Core 1
4. ledzeppelin - Pentium II 400 MHz, FreeBSD 4.10
5. tull - Pentium MMX 300 Mhz laptop, FreeBSD 5.2
6. blacksabbath - Pentium II 400 Mhz, OpenBSD-i386 current
7. jimihendrix - Pentium 333 Mhz, NetBSD 1.6.2
8. judaspriest - UltraSPARC - I, 170 Mhz, OpenBSD-sparc64 current

My dad runs SuSE on i386(home) and SGI(work) and I sometimes help him with that too (at least on his home machine. He won't let me fiddle with his SGI box ).
