I got a spare machine sitting here that does good if the os is not trying to kill its resources...
I experimented in safe mode, seeing what runs and what doesn't, the points quadrupled for an old prescott. That is still approx only 500 a day, but it is something to do. What can I do with ubuntu? there is no instructions precise enough. The spare machine could get xp sp3, but I do not wnat to do this. I have a ubuntu dvd made up and bootable, and do not know what to do to keep it super light. the pc would have no mouse nor monitor but only once and awhile to check on it.
I just want to let it go for 30 says or so, until the pc is sold.
