I need a small OS ?!
I have this Speedy Gonzales Puter: 386 16 Mhz 8 Mb RAM 42 Mb HDD, and I'd like to surf (with graphicalmode, no text browser) through LAN (TCP) with it. I cannot believe this would be impossible, Just tought if You guys (gals) knew one or two OS's ?
QNX is loading.... Oh my The Retro is slooowww...
glad I could help it is a really cool little program
I was at a computer fair this morning and saw a 512mb IDE drive (quantum fireball by looks) for $5. Maybe you should consider going to one in your area. Some of the older parts are real cheap. One bloke had old 486/SX cpu's from $2. I was considering getting one next time and making a keychain.
This is actually written from my WWW_BEAST ! From a OS that fits to a floppy ! Unbelieveble ! Networked through my W2K box with DSL. The errors were fixed when I swapped NIC to 3com 509 and changed com-port to my mouse.
That's it. now it's final, Tepo is a true PC-geek !!
Thankz everyone !
PS: Who needs a HDD...
Tepo, that's pretty slick!
This is SOME SERIOUS FUN !!!!!
I simply can't remember when I had this much pure fun and happiness of success last time with puter's ! I'm flying with this experience for next two or three months !!
Very happy Tepo !
Soooo... what'd you use Tepo...
I am curious George!
hey tempo spo your really using QNX ? hows it working ? and waht all did you g=have to do to get it online ?
I keep a QNX disk with my maintaince kit, just incase I need quick internet access for system specs or tech help when working on offsite systems. The internet demo disk is actually a pretty cool example of streamlined software engineering. Outside of a custom build of network compliant Minix, I have not used anything nearly as efficient.
Also, everyone be sure to check out the complete QNX RTP operating system. It is free for personal use. In terms of compatiblity, QNX simply rocks. Software support is better than BeOS for most Unix users, as GCC compliant source code generally compiles with no issues under QNX. You can even run X, assuming you do not like the base GUI. Here is the link:
Catch ya' later,
I've got it downloading now and even went and picked up the RC5 client for it
i'm pretty sure that qnx has been mentioned on the board a few times before. i'm not quite sure what vesion it's up to right now (i need to check out the site, i suppose) but the last time i used it was about a year and a half ago and even back then it was pretty sweet. definitely more advanced than something you'd expect to fit on a floppy diskette.
Of course I find out about this right after I trashed my old 386. It was just taking up space... :-(. I wonder if you can fit QNX on an 80 meg hard drive?
