I’ve got a new toy

The salesperson looked at me funny – she figured I got the day off yesteday when I came in before lunch to buy PC parts. It took me about 6 hours from the time I got back from the store and the time I got it to boot into Gentoo Linux.

Today, I went to get a real mouse and did a few more kernel recompiles – I figured out that one should always compile the kernel in 386 mode or else your Ethernet drivers won’t work.

The rationale for why I bought a PC and the test I ran can be found here. At least I’ve got a foot warmer this winter.
