I have an old 200 Hz box and I want to make an message board reading machine out of it. ( as simple and clean as I can make it )
Needs to start-up fast as possible.
I’m on Wildblue satellite.
Needs to easily network with other Win-98se machines through a Linksys router.
Preferably just a store bought CD of something I can install on a clean hard drive. ( will consider a free off the net application if that would really be better and easier… easier is important
No bells or whistles.
Want to user Firefox as the browser.
Irfan View as the photo program.
*I want to just hit the switch, after the BIOS starts, then "bing’ I’m ready to read the boards. If I find a picture I want to keep, I hit the network when I have another machine running and move any saved pictures etc.
Want it to be on a completely different machine as I don’t want to mess with dual boot or partitions etc. ( I don’t know how anyway )
Never messed with the big “L”.
Must be simple nuff for me… ( very simple )
