Good summary there fishyfish One thing I'd like to mention though:

To be able to play Doom (we're not talking about the limitation to 32 colours without a suitable graphics card) at a somewhat playable speed, you'll need a 030 accelerator which will cost quite some money. 'Getting online' will require a TCP/IP stack software plus the current 68k browsers are quite limited regarding surfing the internet. I know that it might sound strange, but if you'd like to play Doom and surf the net... try to get a 'space debris' class PC for free and use that. It'll save you a lot of headaches and money in the long run
