http://dmitry.co/index.php?p=./04.Thoughts/07.%20Linux%20on%208bit#uniqstr_1343052874841_q
How can I add the following to it?
PS/2 port (for keyboard)
RCA Video out (for TV connectivity)(for X)
Possibly Ethernet port (for networking?)
Are these possible?
Can I install the most lightweight browser I find?

This topic has a solution.

You do know that it takes 2-3 hours to boot as far as a login: prompt don't you? It's a piece of technical genius but no one would ever describe it as useful/usable!

Your ISP would certainly not complain about you using too much bandwidth. :wink:

I found it to be a very cool project too.

Lessee--if it takes several hours to boot, then the frame rate would be measured in hours or days?

I've never met a pig I didn't like, as long as you have some salt and pepper.

I liked the JavaScript based Linux emulator. IIRC Cliff posted a link to that some time ago.

I really really really don't care about speed

It's not as if I would use it as an actual computer...

You don't care about speed? The thing is impossibly slow! When you've got things like the Raspberry Pi at a price point less than the cost of an ethernet shield, why would you bother?

Because I can?!
There doesn't have to be a reason for everything you know...
When I say I dont care about speed I mean that it doesn't bother mw that I will start in the night and it will have booted in the morning.

Because you can! If you can, you wouldn't be asking the question. Can it be done? Of course it can. How? With a lot of effort. If you REALLY want to tavkle this, then avoid ethernet and use a serial SLIP connection. That gives you the internet interface. As to what browser, then try any you have available.

I meant for the "I can" feeling. Sorry and thank you

I have switched off your signature in the posts above - to me this just looks like very subtle spam.

Did you waste your time on at least reading it?

You say that it is doable, but it takes so much time that makes it so unpractical that none would consider it doable, am I correct?
Well, if it is doable, I most certainly want to do it, so, as I said previously, could you explain me what I would need to make it real? Even I power it and it responds after two hundrend hours.

It was a page full of links to other pages - that's exactly what site spammers use when trying to promote their Google hit score. As I say, just looked like spam to me.

If you REALLY want to try it, i'd suggest you get a bit of experience with linux especially with networking. Having a background in computer architecture helps
