i486

Got a spare 486/Pentium PC knocking about?

Then why not make use of it? This little beastie I’m running here is an Intel Pentium 133Mhz, 48mb RAM, 2GB HDD. It runs MS DOS 6.22 & Windows for Workgroups v3.11. It’s sat happily on the internet with web browser, FTP client et al and makes a perfect IRC machine.

If you have a box gathering dust that you feel like resurrecting, use the files below. I have included the driver disks for my hardware in case they are of use to anyone else.

NOTE:
These files may contain copyrighted and/or licensed material. If you are unsure on the legality of downloading these and/or if you do not own the rights to any of this software then please don’t download it. I am not a software pirate and do not condone it either. This is for educational and personal entertainment purposes only.
If you are the owner of these files and wish them to be removed, just ask and I will gladly do so.

Furthermore, to any web developers who may be browsing this site, yes I have used tables! Get over yourself!
