You're not still going to put NetBSD on it are you? The official logo for NetBSD is below.

So, you're turning to the other darkside? Away from the light that is BSD, and towards the chaotic darkness that is GNU/Linux? You GNU hippy you!

It'll be interesting to see how it works out!

BSD or BAD? lol. Is that a P2 i see in there? whoa, shows a mod can be made out of anything i guess. I think i may make a real custom mod out of an older crappy case i have lying around, cut things out of the side, get some vents that come out of the side slightly and have a gap at the bottom. I also have the chassis of the case as well completely stripped of anything useful. Could come in useful as a weird window mod. Hope that gives you a few ideas for yours.

I dunno if 64-bit SuSE is an "easy" form of SuSE, I doubt it! Looks like SuSE will be entirely subsumed by Novell any day now. Novell wants to sell support, not OS's. Sure, OS first, but the mandatory support contract from Novell will be too expensive by far for Linux dabblers.

If I'd only get off my duff and install FreeBSD. Its mascot is worth the effort. Beats Tux by a light year. Sorry, Tux!

AFAIK, NetBSD is the most secure OS--right out of the box.

Aedan, keep in mind, if I use NetBSD. You will be getting daily PM's on how to do things.

No, it is dual P2's. Built it from eBay. Its my file/music server and 24/7 folder.

Case (eBay): $20 inc. postage
Mobo + CPU's (eBay): $48 inc. postage
128mb RAM (Stole out my old Compaq). Original cost was $99, but it was official stuff bought from Compaq. Compaq now has 64mb RAM, which is more than enough for Windows 98SE and my parents card games.
CD-ROM (eBay): $10 inc. postage
Floppy (from an old 486 SX): Got the old 486 for setting up a ladies new PC.
Screen (came with 486 SX)
Keyboard (found under bed): I think it might have come with the 486, im not sure.
Mouse (Harvey Norman): $10. Poorly track mouse, the one the came with the Compaq wore out, replaced it with this one, then a laser mouse, becasue this one is crap.

Getting holes cut (local metal works place): $10, I dont have the tools to do it.
Black spray paint (hardware shop): $6, will confrim once I buy it.
Red spray paint (hardware shop): $6, will confirm once I buy it.
Clean laquer (hardware shop): $15, will confirm once I buy it.
120mm Red LED fan + grill (pccasegear.com): $25 inc. postage
20cm Red CCFL (CoolPC.com): $26 inc. postage
2x Red LED's (pccasegear.com): $4.40

TOTAL COST OF MOD: $92.40 + perspex sheet

TOTAL COST OF PC: $88.00 (not including RAM, as I already had it).

I will post more pics, as I get paint etc.

whoa! sweet mod! Have you thought of getting it plated (electrolytic plating)? If you have the tools, you could do it at home (outside because of fumes). I was learning about it today in Physics and that gave me the idea of doing the PCI slot covers in Copper! (Copper Chloride). All you need is a powerpack (12V output recommended), 'croc croc cables' (crocodile clip cables), A glass container, a small copper strip (about 5cm x 2cm), copper chloride (enough to cover the PCI slots without it touching the container). If you want to know how to do it (not just PCI slot covers, anything metal such as thumb screws, just PM me). Or instead of copper, why not try a different metal chloride (imagine platinum coated slots or memory heatsinks, the perfect companion to corsair platinum memory!). It's always an idea but to get it done professionally, it could cost quite a bit, even for a 'worthless' metal.

HAZARD!: DO NOT SNIFF OR SMELL THE GAS PRODUCED DURING ELECTROLYTIC PLATING! IT IS HIGHLY TOXIC AND REQUIRES A LOT OF VENTILATION AND OPEN SPACE!

Just an idea if you want a red-brown effect on metal parts.

Will ask my physics teacher when schools goes back.

Thanks for the idea though, mate.

That's ok, I've never used NetBSD. I use OpenBSD (Only one remote hole in the default install, in more than 8 years!). I could ask one of the NetBSD pkgsrc maintainers though...

OK, OpenBSD then. But yeah, is it difficult to use.

As am I, the copper thumbscrews and metal highlights on it would look cool in my Klingon Case
