    I found these old compact pasarios


    So i got this compaq presario 41:2 (2 of them) and theyre really cool, no fans or nothing and old gfx cards (s3's)

    heres the stats:

    120mhz
    40mb ram
    s3Trio v64
    1gb disks (with win 95 on them)

    so i decided that dsl would be the best choice to put on them, but it doesnt want to boot of any device... any idea of how to get it to boot, also, i cant get into bios on startup...

    use a boot floppy with cdrom support. if you can't get into the bios the normal way,boot the machine without the keyboard plugged in. this will give an error report & will tell you which key to press to get into your bios
