Hi Alex,<br><br>There is a good chance Linux will run well on that hardware. If not, you<br>can always disassemble it and use some of the parts for other systems.<br><br>Cheers,<br><br>Adrien<br><br><b><i>jim stockford <email@example.com></i></b> wrote:<blockquote class="replbq" style="border-left: 2px solid rgb(16, 16, 255); margin-left: 5px; padding-left: 5px;"> To: firstname.lastname@example.org<br>From: jim stockford <email@example.com><br>Date: Sun, 12 Feb 2006 14:46:11 -0800<br>Subject: [sf-lug] Fwd: On another subject: HP C3600S<br><br> <br>anybody got advice for Alex?<br><br>Mine is: grab 'em both and go from there; they're<br>old enough that there's a good chance all the<br>subsystems are known to the linux software folks.<br> if not, then you (or your surrogate, possibly<br>someone from sf-lug) learned a lot by head-wall<br>beating and at last resort the machines can be<br>donated to a school or techno-reclamation bunch<br>(of which there are two or three at least in the
