Not true, if you're happy with text only web browsing
lynx still works. Of course, in this world of frames-
only sites and overblown imagemaps, that is becomming
less of an alternative.

1. General Linux Questions

Firstly, forgive me for the non-specific subject, but that is indeed the
content of this broadcast.

I currently have an old 486 w/32MB RAM running Win95 (No flames
Very shortly, I will be buying a new computer on which to do my
development work (running Win98 - again, no flames please!).  This will
free up the 486 to run Linux for a bit of fun, to run SPICE, and to run
Gnu C++.  OK, here is what I intend to do, and for this I expect to be
flamed, or at least set straight.

I intend to create a mini-network of two computers, the old and the new
(the good, the bad, and the ugly operator, perhaps?)

I would like to run Windows 98 on the new computer, with dual monitors,
using the old monitor from the 486 and the monitor supplied with the new
computer (one for debugging).  I have a very old 8-bit hercules card and
mono monitor which I'd like to run on the 486, purely for booting etc.
Is this a good idea?

I would like to use the new computer (Pentium-class) to telnet (or xterm
or whatever) into the 486 to run any linux apps I'd like to.
Is this a good idea?

Further questions:
(a) I have a 3.2 GB disk in the 486, that currently I can only see 2.1GB
of.  will linux cure this as the Large-Disk HOWTO suggests?
(b) Does SPICE come with the Red Hat distribution?

Thanks for your time,
Matt van de Werken
