Take one 500MB Hard Disk, one 200MB Hard disk (swap)
Add an Emachines T1090 w/ Celeron 900Mhz
Add ArchLinux bare install
BEWM! One operating linux box ripe for me to set up how I WANT TO! That's the best thing about Arch Linux...it's ability to do a bare install of 100MB and from there, build your linux box how you want to build it. It's like getting a frame for a Ferrari and being able to add whatever things you want to add to it. The package builder is awesome...I've run slackware on my main machine for years and am now priming to switch over to ArchLinux 0.5. Nothing right now can beat it for configurability. If you have some linux knowledge and need a fast, easy to configure box...this is for you!
