My roommate and I share a computer line to a dialup. What I am considering is
a old computer with a modem that will coonect to the server and run slip or ppp
. From that computer Both my computer and his Mac would use a serial cable to
connect to the Server. What I need to know is what is the minimum processor
that will run Linux. also, I am root on the machine that will run the other
end of the slip/ppp connect, but I am not root of the machine that is the
dialup. Is this possible? Any possible problems/hints will be appreciated.
Please respond by email, as I do not read this group very often.
PS I have previously run and setup Linux Slackware on my old 486 machine (ie.
I am familiar with Linux, just not with Slip/ppp and minimum configs) Thanks
