I was reading a thread by appiah4 (The Budget 1997 OS/2 Warp PC) where he was creating an OS/2 based system.
I was always a bit unimpressed by OS/2 whenever I tried it when I was younger. However, I also freely admit that I have never really gave OS/2 a good chance to shine on the hardware I had as the time.
So to that end, I propose to assemble a pretty butt kicking OS/2 system, outfitted with hardware suiting it. Then install OS/2 Warp 4 on it and really give it a good workout.
Hardware I intend to use:
Asus P2B-D2 Dual Socket Slot 1 Motherboard
2 x Pentium 2 - 450mhz
250GB WD IDE Hard drive
Matrox G400 AGP Video card
ESS1689 ISA Sound Card.
Generic Realtek 8139 network card.
IDE DVD-ROM drive (i'll just grab a random one from the pile)
3.5inch Floppy Drive (again, pile of, grab one that works)
I'll try and post some photos once made. Anyone have any suggestions for my hardware choices before I start assembly in the next day or two!
This is all hardware I have in storage. Easy to assem
