My Box

Well, frankly, there is nothing very impressive about my box. It has fairly low configuration by today’s standards, but has enough to keep me happy! 🙂

Here is what it contains:

CPU : Sempron 2800+ s754,
Motherboard : Asus K8V-VM Ultra,
Graphics : Onboard (northbridge- VIA K8M890, southbrige- VT8237A)
Memory : 1GB DDR400 RAM (64MB goes to graphics)
HDD : 120GB Seagate SerialATA

At present five Operating Systems inhabit my box:

1. Debian (currently Etch) – My favourite. With each passing day I seem to love it more!  If I ever be able to set-up a home server, this would be my Server OS!

2. CentOS 5 – Thinking about RHCE! 😀

3. PC-BSD 1.5 – Its considered as an easier way into the FreeBSD world.  Heard almost everyone speaking respectfully about FreeBSD!

4. Test OS – A partition kept aside for experimenting with distros.

5. Windows XP SP2 – Ummm… am helpless here. My company uses some proprietary softwares which run only on 2000/XP.

In case if you are interested in knowing the partitions I have, here it is:
