It has been awhile since I felt so excited Dug up an old Pentium Celeron 500Mhz with 128mb of SDRAM and decided to install Vyatta on it and make it into a router/proxy/firewall.
Download the Vyatta ISO : LINK
*** I hit a snag when the machine didn’t wanted to boot from the CDROM. Luckily the machine had a floppy drive and I loaded Smart Boot Manager [LINK] and manually booted from the CDROM
Once you have booted the CD, you can login with the Default password for Vyatta:
Default password: vyatta
- Create and run the Vyatta LiveCD.
- Login as user vyatta with password vyatta and run the “install system” command.
- Remove the LiveCD.
- Make sure your BIOS is configured to boot from the persistent device the system was installed to.
- Reboot the system.
- Test the installation.
