  1. IT works with Rosetta, but is a 24 hours job for crunching basic data.
  2. Ok, got things going. For the records Version 7.4.42 works with KernelEx (I used v28c). I´m just limited for the amount of memory I have in this old machine, most of projects require at least 300 Mb and I have 284 available. Also crunching from World Community Grid is not easy, as is the only group that require a higher encryption, but it can be done from W2000, with enough RAM. So the answer to all this: project done! Thx for your help
  3. Thanks Brooke. Version 7.4.42 stops in the middle of install. Version 6.6.38 works, but is unable to download project data, with SSL error and deferred connection messages. I upgraded to SP4 for W2000 and have nothing else than BOINC on this computer.
  4. Hi all, looking for the last working version of BOINC client for W2000. The current Versions for download only work in XPand above... Thanks.
  5. Win XP in P3 1 Ghz 256 Mb RAM PC over here, dual boot with Puppy Linux Lucid. With XP services tweaked, no antivirus and connected. Runs like a champ, no virus, no blue screens, running SeaMonkey as browser. I also have two laptops, one with Win 10 and the other with Debian, but for some reason still prefer the old PC.
  6. My vote is for SRWare Iron. Had no problems at all with a PIII
  7. One more question. Is possible to install Windows ME in another fat formated drive along with Windows XP? I´ve read that in case of multiboot systems the oldest SO must be the first to install, but sure must be a work around to install ME after XP.
  8. How about the security in ME and 2000? I heard that ME is not being targeted anymore, just Windows NT based systems.
  9. Thanks, interesting link and a good reading. Windows ME is the less known Windows. It just hadn´t enough time... Ok, Win ME has one point in the basket, right now.
  10. Hi, all. New Member here. I have a Dell Pentium III with 256 Mb RAM and a 1 Ghz processor, currently with a customized Windows XP that doesn´t work bad, but is very slow at times. I was thinking on an old Windows, just for fun. I tried some Linux distros but I always had some problems with Linux recognizing the hardware. The OS must be Win98SE or Win ME, maybe 2000. I want to have something capable of at least browsing the web fast and play old games. I´m curious about some comments read on this forum about the speed of such unbloated os and for some nostalgia too. But all will depend on finding the correct drivers for my two USB Wi-Fi adapters, both Linksys WUSB54CG; I found no drivers for 98/ME/2000, just for XP/7 in the official site. I have another adapter that came with a CD with Windows 2000 drivers, so maybe I´ll have to cope with 2000 due to the drivers. So what should be the better option? Regards
