That was fast

Ordered a new box to replace our dual-amd, with which we continue to have random locks every couple of days, on Wednesday evening just before one of these Dell special deals expired -- it's their entry level server which has a nice Unofficial Dell PowerEdge 400SC FAQ.

Shipment was supposedly to be in three days from now ... yet the box arrived today! It boots Knoppix as well as my Quantian just fine. A pIV 2.8 GHz and a mobo with sata support, gigabit lan, graphics, sounds, whathaveyou all integrated along with a puny little disk and a laughable amount of Ram (order for a gb from crucial is on its way), it all came to just over $500 of which $100 should come back via a mail-in rebate.
