I'm trying to set up some diskless linux systems. These systems would
mainly be running a web browser (probably Netscape) and eventually might
run WordPerfect Office or Applixware. I'd like to find a system that is
small (physically) and hopefully inexpensive (this is for a non-profit
org). My first thought was to find a good all-in-one motherboard and
build up the systems. I tried the Asus SP97V, but I can't get the
builtin SIS 5598 video chipset to work worth a darn with XFree.
My question is, does anyone know of a good all-in-one motherboard that
will work well with Linux and XFree86? Or any small, inexpensive
prebuilt systems I could use as diskless Linux boxes?
As an alternative, does anyone know of any inexpensive X-Terminals?? I
suppose I could beef up the Linux server a bit and run everything off of
X-Terminals. I kind of liked the idea of having local processing power
with the diskless systems, but I'm flexible.
