I started to install Linux on my home system, olny to find that my bios
only supports hard drive up to 512 meg! Looked into upgrading the
rom-bios. Turned out to be a can of worms I didn't want to open. For
info, my system is:

486 DX/66, 93', AMD bios, 64 meg ram, VISa localt bus.

So you see, I have to build a new system before I can use Linux at home.
