We have been
giving some thought to buying a SECOND HAND older
computer - something like a 500mhz machine - to put a full Linux
system on, if we cant get the LIVE versions I am tinkering with to

members, but so far what I have viewed have been beyond our currents
I have a K6-2-500 PC that is surplus to requirements, which you can take
away from the next WLUG meeting for the one off price of nothing. It will
not be pretty - it will be about as quick as a P2-350 from memory.
Otherwise there are often people on this list with computers they are
away for a song- unfortunately I've just got rid
of all of mine. If you
check our buy/sell/exchange page at http://www.wlug.org.nz/GarageSale/
will see where these transactions are normally carried out. If you still
can't see the web site, that's the first thing we need to fix!
If, however, you do have a bit of money to spare, one of those $850 Dell
computers would give you an experience ten times better than what you'd
out of an old P2 machine. Linux would have a much
better reputation if
people could/would try it on better specced machines.
