That is if you call that "working." Users I know would not accept a 10
minute boot time.

It might work as a file server, router board, or some such application.
AFAIK, your only hope is Damn Small Linux.

Personally, I don't the patience when better junk is on the market.
Coincidentally, I was at university surplus property yesterday and saw
that the Pentium III's like the one I bought in May are all gone. Now,
they only some AMD 850MHz systems for $30, some Pentium 4 systems for
$80, some PPC Macs for $80, and some "lamp base" Macs for $130. Only a
*** would think that any Pentium Pro/II was comparable to any of
these "junk" systems. BTW, are you saying that your Pentium II runs at 2 x
133 = 266 MHz? That could be possible, but AFAIK, no Pentium II had a
clock that slow. Pentium, yes. Pentium II, no. If you have a Pentium at
133MHz (very common), then you will need even more patience. Toss it.

Well, as a chess player, thinking one more move ahead, I wonder--does
that mean we Linux bashers are *pro-Linux*?

Self admitted "linux basher" wants help. Dopez99 is a stupid troll.
