Hi so I bought an HP Thin Client from a boot sale the other day, cost me a whole £1.
I was quite pleased to find it worked, it has a 1ghz processor, 128mb DOM drive, 1gb ram, 4 USB's, VGA and DVI.
So after Googling it, I found that the DOM drive can be removed, and the pins on the mobo are the same IDE ones that are on the A600 & A1200's.
Icaros was installed to a 20gb 2.5" IDE drive, from CD on a USB DVD drive.
It boots from start-up to the Icaros Desktop :)

The mobo with the original DOM drive.

I will try to post more pics tomorrow.
ATM I cannot get the sound to work?
Has anyone else had an experience with AROS/Icaros?

Now that is a steal! What can you get for a £1 these days?

AROS is an o/s I have been wanting to try for some time now. I have a Catweasal MK4 which is supposed to work fully with ICAROS... even running original protected floppy disk games direct with Janus afaik!
