What to do with a P1 133 MHz?

I have one at home that I was given from work a couple of years ago. Any idea what I could use it for?

my daughter has a p1 166 with 128meg/ram running DSL, and it works great for her little internet surfing and barbie.com games.

Howto Setup your linux powered holdmuisc box:
by: Cruz Cranford


If you were like us, and used a cd player playing random music from a cd then this is for you. Setting up your own computer
to play mp3's is simple, cheap, and a lot cooler and more dependable than using a cd player. The way we have ours setup is
with a p133 w/ 32mb of ram, and a 600mb drive. The box mounts a samba share from our file server ( basically giving it a 120GB ), so we can drag and drop mp3's into the hold music folder, and have the machine remake the list automatically. You
can obviously store the media in many different ways, you can burn a cd full of mp3s, have it mount a nfs share, or even
have them on the local machine, its all up to you and how you want your setup.

I'll go over the basic information on how to setup the box...

Basic Information:

1. Download and install linux on the box.
2. Edit the init so only minimal services are booted ( i.e. turn off sendmail, httpd, etc... ).
3. Decide on how where you want your media stored, I'll continue using samba mount for example.
4. Configure your soundcard and make sure sound is working.
5. Download mpg321 ( http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/m...-0.2.10.tar.gz ) compile and install it.
6. You can skip this step: We have ESD setup so we can have a voice come on, dim the music, and say thanks for holding
your call is very important to us, we also have a computer voice setup so we can type network outages/issues and have
the script read them instead of us having to log in and create a new message, its really quite sweet. If you want to
use any of the above cool things, its extra and I'll leave that up to you, ESD is pretty simple to setup, just throwing
this step in as an FYI of cool things you can do.
7. Install perl on the machine if is not already.
8. Make a file called holdmusic.pl and paste this into it:

#!/usr/bin/perl

$mp3dir ="/mp3/Hold Music/";

while (1) {
system(`killall -9 esd`);
system(`killall -9 mpg321`);
system(`mpg321 \"$mp3dir\"*`);
system("killall -9 mpg321");
system(`killall -9 esd`);
};
9. The perl script is plain and simple, basically, whenever the current playlist is completed, it restarts mpg321 and
whatever files have been added will play in the new playlist.
10. Plug up your audio/line out to your phone systems hold music connection, test the volume and adjust it using any EQ
software.

That should be it, let me know if you have anyquestions.

One of my most trusted systems believe it or not is a 133 I recently upgraded to a 200. I still run Win95 on it. I am amazed it hasn't melted down by now knowing how vulnerable it is to get on line with it. Its just a trash system I have.

I have a 366mhz I am attempting to install Red Hat on, as we speak, for the first time. I've never messed with Linux before and figured this was as good of a time as any to learn.

If it's a socket 5, I've got a bunch of Cyrix MII 300s lying around. They'll make it usable at least.

I have an old Compaq that I'd be willing to donate to someone.
I think it has a 400mhz cpu.
