This is cool. I just aquired a 43p-140 233Mhz machine. I also have
access to a pile of excess macs I could salvage a CPU from. I would
love to give this a try but I need to get linux on my machine first.

I found exactly one site that gave step by step instructions
http://www.solinno.co.uk/7043-140 but it seems to have gone down this
past weekend.

Any pointers to get started?
