Default My Linux Machine (56 k should be alright)

Here is my linux machine. Pretty Basic..i'm waiting on a VGA converter to get it really going. Hopefully it will be here by Friday.



And here is the PS2 Branded Keyboard and mouse



The linux version is based on Red Hat 9. I haven't been able to really use it well due to screen limitations..(can't see crap on a TV and it isn't compatable with my Monitors without a converter.) and i've had it since March. Hope fully this thing will rock and roll.
Gonna add a neon light and hopefully a window on the PS2. Just to really make it bada$$.

That'* hot. What all did it take to make it and where can I find the parts I'd need to make it? my roommate is looking at getting the New slim one and I might be able to buy his old one off him.

Well i got good news and bad...the good news is that you can do the fan mod...and the light mod...but the bad news is that the Linux Kit is no longer available...you might check Ebay, not sure though. I don't know why they quit all the sudden but it'* true.
The fan is a standard 80 MM fan and i am going to put some lights in from advance auto parts. They are 12 volt .
