Well, if you don't have the hardware anymore, fixing it would be moot
and the only thing we can do is remove it. So, the question is, do you
still have a functioning box and you want to waste your time with it?

I mean, this is pentium III, it probably takes forever to build the
latest kernel on it and if it were me, I'd simply buy new hardware.
Because IMO, it is not worth the energy to even power such ancient crap
and waste money on the electricity it is going to consume...
