Well it would never be awesome but its not useless, if you rad my post about online clusters you would know you can make online clusters, we actually have a team for one of the apps that does just that check it out its in the OT forum.

Clustering old machines is a good way to recycle them for more useful purposes rather than just having them sitting doing nothing except storing old data and for playing old games which you could do on a recent pc as well. Most old games you can get broswser and java versions of, quake 1 and 2 are in browser and java so is half life and they are working on quake 3.

Casheti, I know you mean well but capital letters hurt those very people who are giving their replies to the thread you started about clasic comps. I don't know myself but if you start another thread with that question exactly I am sure someone wiill see it.

Ah that's because it's a drive, meaning harddrive, you see for me I have come to think of my external harddrive as my computer as everything and everywhere else as access, it is the external harddrive that matters the rest can get as infected as it likes and it doesn't matter. It is because the person doesn't now how to do save\reformat\reinstall\load that makes him cling to his system. btw lets turn to your problem, but have you started a thread for it yet?
