Nothing big or profound to report here, just having a great time typing this on an old Toshiba Satellite running DSL:
192MB RAM (maxed out)
Octopus (TwinMOS) 802.11b PC WIFI card
DSL 3.4, frugal install to 1GB CF card via a HD-CF adapter
The display's only 800x600, but otherwise this is a pleasure to use. It runs quite cool, but it's still quite fast and SILENT. (I don't think this model has a fan - if it does, it's either not working or it's been cool enough to not need it.)
The only hard part was finding a WIFI driver that would work - the NETR8010.INF on the card's CD apparently doesn't work with ndiswrapper, but some Googling located a NET8010.INF that works great. Everything else was easy.
So, again, nothing that big. Just another really good DSL experience. Thanks, as always, to John, Robert and eveyone who contributes!
