Howdy:

Personally, on that system, I wouldn't even consider it.. Burning pulls every bit of ram and resources available and a P-1 with 32megs of ram just isn't going to cut it..

I think you will end up with more buffer under-run errors than you will burnt cd's!!

Check the minimum system requirements for the butner and burning program..

As it stands, I use a P-3 866 processor with 512 megs of ram and when I burn, that's all I do..

Tried it with a p2-500 and 256 megs and I would just have to walk away from the system while it was burning..
