Dell Optiplex GX270 (Athene)

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2r2 was installed from CD-ROM (22 May 2002). The network card was not recognised and so the kernel was upgraded to 2.4.6 which was available on a CDROM, requiring moving to the use of initrd and resulting lilo configuration changes (see Sections 42.1 and 38.22.5). This kernel supported the ethernet card so that the installation could be upgraded immediately to unstable. The graphics chip (ATI Rage 128 Pro TF) though was not supported by the current XFree86 (4.1.0). An upgrade to the experimental XFree86 (4.2) fixed that.
