This page is about my Gentoo Linux based home server/router/video player.

In terms of hardware it isn't exactly a beast but I still find it very useful.

CPU: Athlon64 3200+
Ram: 2Gb
HDD: 1Tb Samsung Spinpoint F3
Motherboard: Asus A8N-E
Graphics: Nvidia Geforce-G210
Sound Card: Creative Soundblaster SE
Additional NIC: 3Com Tornado

Many of the server/router features were set up as per the gentoo home router guide, so if it isn't mentioned below, then it is probably from there.

It is wired as shown below:
