    From CNET:

    Retail giant Wal-Mart has added the Lycoris version of Linux to its menu of budget PCs. Wal-Mart has become one of the most important mainstream boosters of the open-source Linux operating system and other alternatives to Microsoft's Windows.

    Through its Web site, the retail giant early this year began offering low-cost PCs without an operating system preinstalled. It then expanded to Linux, initially relying on the Lindows distribution of Linux and later expanding to include MandrakeSoft's version of the OS.

    By using the open-source software and low-cost processors from Taiwan chipmaker Via, Wal-Mart has been able to drive down prices to $199 for a PC without a monitor.

    Could I buy one of those Lycoris based computers and network it to my Win2K gateway machine? I am currently networked to a win98 client.
    Any way of doing that?
