Home-built Computer

I had been running an AMD-based machine (I refuse to refer to this as a PC as this has too many negative connotations!) that I assembled myself. Although I had intended to run FreeBSD on this machine when I built it, I ran into problems with one of the pre-release updates to version 5.3 where the filesystem became corrupted. After unsuccessfully trying everything that I could think of to recover the disk, I gave up, and reformatted the drive to install Fedora Core Linux. I’m still following the progress of FreeBSD, but decided to take the opportunity to check out the current state of the Linux world… Here are the specifications:

I have passed this machine on to Eric so that he would have a faster machine for his Flight Simulator. We put in a faster video card, and moved his 300Gb drive from his Vaio with Windows XP.
