We, at the VUB university, have some old Mac LC II's with 6MB RAM and
40MB harddisk. We would like to use these machines to alow students to
telnet to the central server and to request accounts for other machines
(via WWW, using Lynx if that exists for OpenBSD). It's not much, but if
you just want to check your mail, it's enough. If we'd use MacOS, we'd
have to reinstall it every two days (trashing harddisks is quite popular
OpenBSD could solve our headaches, but I still have a question: does it
still need MacOS? If OpenBSD needs to be booted from MacOS, the security
will not increase (= remain at 0). If someone has an idea, please tell me.
Thanx in advance,
