I had a Thinkpad 600e (366mhz) for quite a while. Loaded up with 296MB of RAM it was actually quite functional. Although it had a crappy sound card, it worked without any headaches. I did an ftp install, too, so you wouldn't even need the cd to at least get up and running, as long as it has the floppy. -- Andy Harrison _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
