LOL, a 486 as a game machine :-)))

Nah, I use my 486 as a router... 2 cheap ethernet cards in it and there you 
go. Or as thin client... older dos games sometimes works great under wine. 
It's somegood advice anyway :)

btw, I still have a cdrom lying around here with dozens of old dos games on 
it (Indiana Jones, commander keen, day of the tentacle which is one of the 
best games Lucas ever made etc.). I'd upload it somewhere for permanence if 
someone can host it. Most of it didn't work last time I tried (win95 pc @ 
133 mhz) but once again, a 486 might do the trick ;-)
