A local surplus shop has several IBM 300 GL machines for $25.
IBM 300 GL (6282-87U)
Cirrus 5436 video (CL-GD 5446)
These machines have 2.5 GB disk, 64 Mb memroy, 233 MHz pentium. They come
with users choice from available stock of network card.
It is uncertain whether they can be expanded.
It partially booted the 5/22/02 BlueBottle CD. The booting Oberon screen
appeared, but the switch to the BlueBottle screen did not occur. No
attempt was made to diagnose beyond this point.
If anyone can give encouragement regarding the Cirrus video and Bluebottle,
I am willing to obtain 2 and report. I am trying to have two identical
I assume that they would work just fine for the native Oberon, but have not
tested it. If anyone else is interested, let me know.
