So, are you running this on an Intel 486DX2-50 with a Seagate ST-4096
with an ISA based RLL encoding controller, or are you using the more
advanced AMD 586 CPU running at 90MHz with an Adaptec ARC2090 PCI based
SCSI card?

And do you have 32 or 64 Megs of memory in that machine?

Cause honestly, that's the kinda hardware I was running 7.0.2 on, so you
might as well get retro in your hardware department while you're at it.
