[Project] Jack In The Box - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Thread Starter 
Ugh, I'm so pissed, I should have noticed this earlier.

The BIOS doesn't provide any way to underclock/overclock anything. There's only two options - CPU voltage and RAM divider (667MHz or 800MHz). So retarded.

Anyway, I lowered the CPU voltage as much as I could (to 1.23V, down from 1.3). Only saved 1W of power though .

Oh well, I guess its just gonna be the standard windows power saving stuff. With the HDDs asleep it'll only use 50W so that'll be fine, around $3 a month.


So now the two new HDDs are being burned in - HDTune is doing a DoD erase on them, running 7 passes. If they can live through that, and a fragmentation and defragmentation, they'll be good to go. So that's going to run overnight and I'll get it set up in the morning.

Sounds awesome!

Though with all the operating systems you listed, confused me. (I've only worked with running a web server off windows XP home. I've tried Linux Ubuntu and Linux OpenSuse (I found OpenSuse a little more difficult than Ubuntu). So when it comes to servers... I don't know enough on how to make things work.

Though you sure seem like you know a lot about what you are doing, and I hope everything will go well for you too.

Well I'm gonna be running through the whole setup process in this thread, except for specific security settings (for obvious reasons). Tomorrow is my last day of finals so I'll have a lot of time on my hands . You should be able to make out the basics from it pretty easily.

The whole 9 yards basically
Thats going to be a nice set-up. Shame about your underclock, but like you said it wont pull much juice anyway. Lookig good!!..

You post at the perfect time! First day I've logged on in like 3 months.

Anyway, bootp is short for "bootstrap", or network boot. The server hosts an image of an OS, and whenever a PC on the network tries to boot from it that image is accessed as if it was a local hard drive.

Well you could use it that way, or you could create a modified image of a full Windows installation - install all the different drivers for all chipsets/gfx cards, install all the games, set it up to use a RAMDrive instead of writing to the disk if it has to, and then everyone can just boot straight into it. Kind of like having everyone run off of a Live CD type of thing, except its off a server.

Though if you want to play any serious games like this (anything with lots of data to load), you should use multiple teamed NICs (at least one port per 2 computers), and lots of drives in RAID0 to keep up. Or if you get a true server motherboard with tons of ram, you can just load the bootp image into a RAMDrive for the best performance possible.

And any DCHP software should be able to do bootp. With Linux, the program is 'bootpd'. Or you can hack Windows RIS to use your own image.
