I'm running a really old mainboard, an MSI 694D Pro (MS-6321).
It is a dual socket, running two Intel PIII Cpppermine CPU's with an
upper limit of 933MHz.
It is classified as a server board.
The board was new in 2000. The board was installed new, in 2004 (it laid
around new in box for a long time), and ran RHEL3 from 2004 until I
upgraded to CentOS 5.4 a couple months ago.
With 2 gig RAM, it runs well for a Desktop machine.
I figure I can squeeze another five years out of it, if I'm lucky. :)
