Description

This machine used to be my main computer in 1997-1999.
Around 2000-2001, it has been used to host gnu-linux.net.
When the hosting contract finished, the computer received a third life as a Win98 workstation for my parents, who needed something to write word documents on.
In November 2003 the computer returns to me, to start its 4th life as a legacy gaming box (Ahh, memories of Day Of The Tentacle, Sam 'n' Max, Indiana Jones and the Fate Of Atlantis, X-Wing, Tie Fighter, ...).
It'll also be running FreeBSD on its SCSI disk.
