Give your old (~9 year's old) PC hardware a new life!

Download the ISO from the website.
Burn the ISO to a CD-R

Now your 10 year old Desktop/Laptop PC is turned to a media player! Capable to playback VCD, CVD, SVCD, x(S)VCD, MPEG 1, MPEG 2, Divx, Xvid , H264...
Add a DVD-ROM and you can watch DVDs or DVD-Rs with data.

You don't even need a Hard Disc! only a CD-ROM, a motherboard with a USB port (get a PCI card and add some if you don't have), a CPU (minimum P2 at 400Mhz, I tried with a P2 @233Mhz and mpeg 1/2 and audio worked with no problems!), any kind of sound card, 64MB of RAM and a VGA card!

This distro even has a realtime USB Frame based detection: Just add your frame on a USB port and start watching / listen the files you have store there!
You can Plug on the USB port your ipod (or any chinapod), your mp3 stick, your USB Memory stick, your mobile walkman phone, your Hard Disc external frame, anything!

Imagine that: you have a very old laptop. The CDROM is broken, the Hard Disc doesn't work and the screen doesn't work. But it has one USB port and a VGA external: it's all you need! Boot from CD, buy a VGA to TV adaptor (RF, Component, RGB, whatever...) and you are ready! your broken 8 year old laptop is a media player now!

Of course, with later hardware, you can have Hi-Def, DVB, Video/Audio Capture, you know...

Give this distro a shot: you'll be amazed, believe me! It's not a fancy solution, but it sure converts your old hardware to a multimedia terminal!
