I have an old SunSparc2 with the following hardware: 32Mb memory,
2 x16Mb Memory upgrade, 424Mbyte internal disk drive, 144Mb 3.5" internal
disk drive, 1.04 Gbyte external SCSI disk drive, 644 Mbyte desktop CD ROM
pack, 8 Gbyte 8mm tape desktop backup kit, 150 Mbyte 1/4" tape desktop tape
backup kit, running SunOS 4.1.3 and OpenWindows version 3 with Sun 4m
supplement for Solaris 1.1 version A. I can't get a modem running on it, and
it hasn't got a network connection..
The equipment is surplus to requirements as its not Y2K compatible, and we
were wondering if it would be suitable as a Linux platform?
If so, where do I start. I can download files form the web to my DOS
machine, and copy floppies across. There may even be a chance I could borrow
a Linux CD. Problem is I can't find out what the vital first step is.
