Tux - the box

Basically an old UK VHS recorder that I brought home with me when I came home and then found it was useless here as I don't own any VHS tapes and the tuner was setup for the UK broadcast signal. I also had an old Dell GX1 desktop machine so why not reduce the space and put two pieces of junk together.


1 x British VHS recorder

1 x Dell GX1s

1 x 400mhz CPU

3 x 128 meg ram

 1 x 320 gig hdd.

The end result is a very very quiet and stable server. Heaps of space and surprisingly quick. Installed Redhat AS4.2. Now to be given to a mate as a web, email and file server.
