I haven't used them, or even seen them, yet. Sort of odd, since we've
got 400 students on campus here, and I tend to see lots of PCs and micro
PCs as all the frosh tend to get new computers.

Well, it must work with Linux, as Telsa has one and has been using
RedHat on it. (That's telsa who's related to Alan Cox, the Linux kernel

32MB of ram, but with more it should be OK (although probably not fast).
