System11 is the name I use for one of my computers:

I have data for some of my other machines on my private TWiki.

Purpose: CD-Rom burner, experimental Linux installs -- the machine runs only when needed.

OS: Triple boot utility | Win 95 | Linux. Burning is done in Windows with Easy CD Creator 4. Tried burning from Linux once a few years ago -- will try again.

IP Address: (see if you can guess my naming convention)


  • TX-ProII motherboard, SiS chipset -- uses onboard sound and video (SiS <later>) For reference, the VGA driver is the M571, the audio chipset is the CM8330. See hints for (re)installing Win95.
  • Cyrix Cx6x86l-PR166+ (133 MHz.)
  • 48 MB Ram, 2x16 and 2x8 MB SIMMS (the 72 pin thingies), one is EDO, one is FP, both running at 60 ns.
  • Western Digital WDC A 14300 hard drive, 8912 cyl, 15 hds, 63 secs, runs with LBA, BLK, 32 Bit on, and PIO 4.
  • AOpen AON-201 NIC (coax and TP)
  • Acer CRW6206A CD-R drive (2x, 4x) (runs with PIO 4)
  • Cyber Drive 24X Cd drive (24x) (runs with PIO 4) -- has trouble reading some generic silver on silver media, see CdDRCyberDrive24X
  • Case: AT mini tower -- nice because it has a sliding front cover which I should use to keep dust out of the burner when not being used.

Partition Table: <later>

Hints for (re)installing Win95

  • Using, e.g., Partition Commander, set the desired Windows partition to be bootable
  • Boot from Win95 install floppy that includes CD-Rom drivers
  • Install Win95 (reboot)
  • Install various Win95 updates (from my CD containing SRs) including that for Y2K, Winsock, and ? (reboot as requested)
  • Insert the driver CD-Rom and:
    • install the M571 VGA driver and video utilities (by navigating there with Windows Explorer)
    • install the audio accessories (Soundpro, not PCI Soundpro) (by navigating there with Windows Explorer)
    • install the audio driver (CM8330) by:
      • go to Control Panel -> System -> Hardware
      • delete the CM-8330 devices under the "Unknown" devices
      • reboot (with the driver CD in the drive)
      • Windows will find the new devices and seek to install them, you may have to help Windows find them on the CD-Rom
