Other than that, XP should run OK on your system... it will be more stable than ME, but your computer in all likelihood will run slower with XP
Ah so it would be better to buy the full version of XP rather than the upgrade.Thanks for that info
Upgrades can be nasty. Go with XP pro. You have a lot more networking capability with PRO.
Yes so it would be wise to put more ram then how does this look and what would be the best purchase.
From the link it looks like you have 128M of RAM. I would buy another 256. I noticed that it won't support more than 512.
Ok then I should just go with crucial then.
I glanced at those memory links. Didn't really study them. You can't go wrong with Cruical. I don't understand that Kingston price. $214???????? I just put in a stick of 128MB PC133 SDRAM Kingston in my W2k box. Full price at Office Max is $50. Its on sale right now for $40 and you get a $10 rebate.
Some general advice....don't buy off-brand memory. Stick with name brands like Crucial and Kingston.
Do they really make external hardrives that work with just regular old USB?[if so do I have to worry about the BIOs with an external one?]
s far as more hardrive space goes, I like the usb external hardrives. I also just installed a 60G Maxtor drive as a slave. I got it on sale for $38. Your BIOS will limit the size of hardrive you can install. Someone else can comment on BIOS limitations for hardrives. Off hand I don't know. But you can look it up on the web.
Try not to use the software that comes with the hardrive. Here's why and this is according to Scott Mueller, later if the MBR gets messed up and you go to run fdisk /mbr to repair it, you could end up with a system that will no longer boot.
