learning openwrt

I was kind of chicken to install openwrt on a fon router till I become more familiar with the os. So I downloaded the openwrt image for the pc and installed it on an old pII. Will wget the packages so I can easily install them as needed, I will try to set up a interceptor on the pc. A win win situation. Nothing can be messed up that can not be easily re-imaged.

You would be much better off using a fon, hey, they are dirt cheap.

Well, I bricked my Fon over 5 times trying to figure out OpenWRT.

After you make a serial cable, its not that scary[bricking] anymore.
