I just got the Gateway SOLO 2550 laptop, which was dropped on the floor by a marketing guy. HDD is broken, keyboard bended, CD-ROM doesn't work and floppy is giving some trouble now and then.

So, I took the poor fella' and now thinking what to do with it. It has a lot of CPU power so there got to be a solution to put this broken baby in the works.

Managed to compile and boot the kernel from the floppy, so there is something to be done with it. I think I'll put it in my jeep as a MP3 player or a GPS station.

Pure fun!
