Retro '98 PC

This one is a bit of a conundrum. I found the motherboard and CPU in the stuff in our attic, so I assume it belonged to my dad a long time ago. It is in need of some board-level repair though so it might take a bit of careful work to get it to function properly.

Current Parts Obtained

The board specifically needs a new voltage regulator to be installed, and a couple of 10v 1000uf capacitors that bulged to be replaced. I might install Windows 95 or 98 on it, but I also wanna see how it would run various Linux distributions, as well as Haiku. It's a Pentium II class CPU, so I assume it would handle at least some of these things well enough.
