Minix 2.0 will also run on a 286, and it is a more mature system with (I 
think) better networking support.  Or you might remove the hard drive 
and mount it in a Linux machine (if the drive isn't IDE or SCSI, you 
will need the controller card and a machine with an ISA slot. If the 
controller card isn't ISA or PCI, forget it).

There's a way out of any cage.
