I have an IA-1 I would like to trade, I runs Windows quite well - but for some reason I can't get it to run Linux. I would prefer Linux, but I can't seem to figure out how to get it running on my system - so I'm willing to trade my "hotrodded" IA-1 for a unit with Linux preconfigured.
My IA-1 has a 450MHz K6-III+, 100MHz FSB/4.5x multiplier. The CF slot has been modified for 5V operation by jumpering the Vcc lines to a 5V pad on an unpopulated serial port - so you can use the Advantech adapter or Microdrive without cutting traces. There is also a heatsink/fan unit that is thermostatically controller. (I'm an electrical engineer - so I designed and built the thermostatically control PWM controller myself :) The PWM controller is removeable, and you can plug the fan directly into the mainboard if you don't trust my handiwork. However, the unit only gets hot when you play MP3's on it - so most of the time the PWM controller keeps the fan running at about half speed and is a lot quieter. It would make a great desktop machine for a kid, or someone wanting about a PentiumII class machine. If I could figure out how to get linux running on it - I wouldn't part with it.
It may run Linux, but I'm an electrical engineer, not a software guy. I live for the hardware mods :)
