20071006-08 – building Hades – 139-3989 – installing network drivers – must have LAN!

Notice the crappy colors; I still only have 16 colors. Finally, I get to install my LAN driver, allowing me access to the other computers in the house as well as the internet. I would need this in order to get the latest version of my video card drivers downloaded.
BACKSTORY: So, as mentioned before (in a 10-part series of blog posts), my trusty computer of 9 years, "Storm", died a nasty death. My secondary/kitchen computer "Hell" stepped up to bat and took Storm’s place, but I still needed a new computer for our somewhat newly-built upstairs space. So I built Hades, during which I wrote another 5 blog posts. These are the pictures I took while building it.
