Interesting story:

On the weekend, my Trixbox VoIP PBX (which runs Asterisk) failed. Unfortunately, during the restore process the hard drive also blew up. Temporarily I setup a ML350G5 as a temp VoIP PBX, however today I had the chance to setup an old Acer Aspire Netbook which I had sitting in a box as my new permanent VoIP PBX.

I used a USB CD-Rom to install Trixbox, as for some reason I couldn’t get it to load the kickstart file during a grub boot off a USB key, also couldn’t get it to mount the NFS install export (maybe the kernel didn’t have support for NFS?).

 

The netbook had decent specs:

Dual-Core 1.5Ghz Process

1GB Ram

Battery (this means I don’t have to put it on my UPS for all my server equipment)

 

Got it setup and it’s running great! :)
