ok so i have a old pentium 166 (remember those) system collecting dust in my basement and i'v heard about people using them as router/firewall boxes. i will probably run linux on it, but last time i tried installing mandrake, its kept on crashing so im back on 95. also, if i were to use it as a router/firewall how do i connect the other computers in my house to it? do i add like 3 pci ethernet card and connect the adsl line into one and the comps in the othe 2, or can i use a hub or switch? the specs for the machine (i believe) socket 7 intel pentium 166mhz (non-MMX) (dont laugh) ATL (who are they?) OEM-i HX mobo 32mb 72 pin EDO ram (dont laugh) Quantum Sirroco 2.5gb h/d (same as above) Creative Sound Blaster 16 (same as above) Diamond Media Stealth 64 gfx (same as above) floppy, and Tatung 8x Cd-ROM i dont want to spend much money on it, considering what it is. but what OS should i run? i know 98SE has ICS but people say this machine isnt fast enough for it to run. or should i go with an older distro of linux?
