    CPU is now down to 4% as I type this out. Firefox takes took about 100 % cpu to load up firefox. Typing this out. Sometimes I gotta wait for the letters to appear. But this is a usb run on usb 1.1 on a 2002 laptop.
    Anyways. I figure a install will be a breeze for me.

    A little niggle. Wicd thinks I am on ethernet cable. Which is confusing the crap out of it . Here. I will show why.

    We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
    Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:
    
        #1) Respect the privacy of others.
        #2) Think before you type.
        #3) With great power comes great responsibility.

    The internal wireless g card in this laptop shows as eth instead wlan. So just a heads up for anyone dealing with this. I turned on wicd with the F key at live boot grub menu under options. This is how I found this out. I used CENI to connect which had no problem. WICD still thinks I am on a wired connection though. Maybe a apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade -y might fix this. I don’t know. I have AntiX 16.2 installed on this laptop internal hard drive. My goal is first pulling out my hard drive out of my IBM T23 with AntiX 16.2 running on it. Insert another. See what happens like I did here.

    To anybody saying AntiX 17 won’t run on old gear. Look at my machine specs in inxi. 2002 is pretty old. Booting off floppy, then usb is pretty old. Not sure how old one needs to be to be called old. 🙂

    PS. The IBM T23 is a P3. This one old is very very very very old P4. The fan is chugging. As soon as I typed that out. It figures. The fan shut down.

    Edit: Click on the screenshot to see the wicd icon in the taskbar, thinking I am on ethernet cable. If I install on this laptop. I will not be using wicd. Just ceni.

    Used PLOP cd on IBM T23. Using Links2 to post. Firefox crashes. I’m in Icewm desktop. Connected using Ceni. Used safe graphics option on boot screen to use vesa. My spare hard drive is bad. It would have been nice if Dillo would have had cookies enabled so I could log in here and used Dillo instead to post. I am not real Links2 savvy on wordpress layout. Poke and hope as usual.

    IBM laptop is newer build but with lower specs than the Panasonic laptop. So define old? No floppy on the IBM t23.
    I know SamK and others with their 600’s will break my record though.

    Just FYI if you need parts, I have a CF-48 available.

    What are you doing for a battery?

    The Porteus Linux CD that I have has Plop in the grub menu. Just saying.

    My battery is original and is of course. No Good. So it runs off the adeptec variable power adapter. I already changed the inverter, the lcd cable, and power jack on the back.

    Thanks for the offer. I do not install plop on the mbr of the hard drive like you do. Unless I am misunderstanding and you mean PLOP on porteus live cd. I figure I might as well use the floppy drive for something. Freeing up the cd drive. I am not hip on Porteus though. So I don’t know if it loads to ram and free’s up the cd drive after loading up porteus or plop.
    So that you can eject the cd and use the cd drive for other stuff.

    I also have upgraded the unit usb and firewire and wireless . The post is over here.

    I treat my laptop as a museum/test bed anymore. Since I get city hall gear when they upgrade their gear. They just tell me to pick it up. I have more hardware than other members here.
    I’ve been known to be a dumpster diver for computer gear, also.

    I just used plop on the livecd ’cause the floppy had gone missing. Since returned.

    Not to brag at all, I have a CF-25,48 CF-M33, several CF-M34, CF-27, 28*, 29*, 30* 31* 52GUN (touchscreen)* 53*. Daily driver is 2014 CF-53 JULA21M. The Panasonic 3E are new to me. A real nut case. (* = more than one)

    Meanwhile I raise a few sheep. 🙂
