    Ideas - What can I do with a P60 box?

    Ok guys - what can I do with this old Pentium 60 box with 50mb ram, a 1.2 gb hard disk, 500mb hard disk and a network card?

    Smoothwall Box is out the window as I'm still 56k modem. Stupid BT and their monopoly on wholesale adsl....

    Any other interesting ideas? Would like to make it a DHCP server with the modem in it to run the net off. Linux based if possible but I'm a total n00b when it comes to anything server related and especially linux based so its a learning exercise.

    Soooooooo....

    Any ideas?

    What about having printer/scanner/digital camera connected to it? suppose as its no USB 2.0 it would be a bit slow, but all the same. Saves you installing drivers when you format on urs...

    smash it up in a really violent way - but film it so you have your own movie!

    could try rigging it with fire works or boot it up, set light to it and see how long it takes to crash!
