OK, here's the deal... I'm an I.T. person, so routing is important to many of my functions. I'm an I.T. person, so I also have everyone and their mothers begging I.T. services from me. No one I know ever seems to have enough money to actually buy the real solution (like just buying a real Cisco or whatever). I've got access to tons of working Apple Mac LC / LC II / LC III units. They all have a 68k processor, just like the Cisco 2500 / 2600 routers. All I (and these low budget people) need is Cisco-like routing and 2 network connections - which I have parts to accomplish with the LC's. Most of the Linux distros that I've seen for the old 68k Mac's suck or are too difficult to setup for these people.
Does anyone know if there's a way to run the Cisco IOS on non-Cisco hardware or a Linux-based IOS like software that would run well on a 68k Mac? Any Linux people out there interested in donating your talents to make these old machines 1) useful again, 2) prevent working systems from going into a land fill, 3) helping broke people with modern tech needs like routing?
