Hardware needed to run ZeroShell on x86 and x86_64 architectures

Zeroshell works on x86 and x86_64 box with at least a Pentium 233MHz, 96MB RAM, an ATA CDROM reader or an ATA Compact Flash (CF) adapter if you prefer to boot from this type of medium (for example on embedded devices).

Every VGA graphic card and RS232 serial port are supported.

The database in which data and configuration are saved can be stored on IDE, SATA, SCSI and USB storage devices.

All the PCI, USB and PCMCIA network cards supported by the Linux kernel are supported by ZeroShell too and should work correctly. For a few Network adapters, Linux has not support for VLAN 802.1q. In this case ethernet packets greater than 1496 bytes are not forwarded on the VLANs.
