LXer: The fun of legacy hardware

Published at LXer:

I have an old embedded system that uses an SBC-MAX board from Computer Dynamics. The unit was part of a vehicle monitoring system that used Windows 98 (one of many fundamental flaws in the design). It has a K6/2 333MHz CPU and 128MB of EDO DRAM. It features a whole bunch of integrated devices and a fairly broken BIOS. As an embedded system it has a PC/104 bus for which I have a few modules including a GPS. I'm would like to get that working but getting Ubuntu to even install on it has been a pain.
