"Last November, the Confalonieri Public Junior High
School in Monza, Northern Italy set up a really interesting and
original optional course for its students. When I heard about it on
an Italian mailing list I contacted the two teachers who run the
course, Fabio Frittoli and Francesco De Gennaro (quoted below as
F&F for brevity) to know something more.
"Stop: What's the course subject?
"F&F: The course consists of five afternoon meetings, during
two hours each, in which the students build one computer per
participant with these characteristics:
"CPU: AMD Sempron 140
RAM: 2 GB DDR2 800
Hard disk: SATA 160gb
Motherboard: Asrock m68 with integrated audio, video and Ethernet
