This weekend I hit the thirftstore to pick up some stuffed animals for my puppy. She likes to tear them up, and they only cost about 50 cents at a thirfstore, so i let her chew them up as much as she wants. (keeps her busy)
anyways as i was eyeballing the usual mound of junk, I spied out a compaq cds520. Many many years ago I wanted one of these things, because i thought it was cool that the monitor ans speakers and cpu and everything was built into the same chasis. Eyeballing the price tag of 9 bucks, i decided to take it home just to play with.
Well, i brought it home and noticed it had 2 network cards installed in the back. I fired it up and i was tickled pink to see freebsd was installed and watched it mount all the drives and prompt me for a login.
I am not a unix user, but i always wanted to play with a linux box. Now i had a neat one before me for only 9 bucks, but i have no idea how to log into this thing.
Are there any default logins for freebsd, or am i pretty much screwed unless I am the one who set it up?
I would like to give it a shot before i whipe out the HD.
let me know.
Heh, it turns out that these old compaq's don't have a normal bios you can fire up when you hit f10.. it requires some sort of special boot disk.
Oh well, mayby the garbage men will be happy to find it at my curb. after all, it did only cost me 9 bucks. :P
