I have a Compaq Contura 410CX. It's a 486DX2-66 with 12MB in which
current versions of FreeBSD, OpenBSD or NetBSD won't install because
of the little RAM. I've had running FreeBSD, muLinux and Tiny Linux
on it, but I really would like to be able to install a current version
of one of the BSD, which I think it would be possible with a little
I don't know how to access the RAM on this machine. I'll try to look
for a technical description and see which kind of RAM it takes, and
get back to you if it¡s one of the kinds you have mentioned.
Anybody else knows anything about this Contura, its RAM or its tech
specs or something which might help?
