If so, you can have my current "gateway" machine - a 386SX/16,
5 MB RAM, 110 MB IDE drive, onboard 256K VGA and a 9" (yes, that's
NINE inch) greyscale monitori, running FreeBSD 2.0.  It's my TCP/IP
test partner and crash-test dummy.  ;^)

I'd be happy to contribute, if you have the bandwidth to support
the service, which I suspect you don't.  I can ask around the
local universities, perhaps one of them has some bandwidth to
spare.  I even know one that has a lot of 386/25 machines they
(mostly) aren't using.  ;^)
