Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: cheap Dell servers for next 4 days
Here are some useful Dell PowerEdge 600SC related links I've collected: overclockers.com review, 2cpu.com review, Dell PowerEdge community forum Useful stuff like pointing out that the power supply connector is slightly non-standard (missing the 5 V line I think), the type of PCI cardsd the motherboard takes (newer "universal" 3 V only, no old 5 V cards), etc.
About the 600SC ethernet, on IRC Jade said: 'The eepro100 and e100 drivers didn't work. I had to download the e1000 drivers. eepro1000 might have worked, but they weren't in any of the kernels or install disks I had. It works now. If you're installing Debian on a 600SC though, you can go here (Intel) to get the driver.'
