Powered up an old Linux desktop

I have a little project I am working on. Today I hope to install Debian Linux on an old tower PC. I have it set up on the dining room table for now. I just powered it on after it had been powered off for 5 and a half years. (It was gathering dust and cobwebs under the stairs in the basement). Suse Linux 9 came right up and believe it or not I remembered the password. (The last log on was 10/30/2006).

  1. Epic fail .... drive failure ...

    It had an 80 gig drive. I couldn't get it to format. The drive was not SATA.

    Going to TigerDirect buy a cheapo desktop
