A year ago I still had a working 386-DX-40 Mhz MoBo, but since I bought my current PC a 960 Mhz Pentium III PC with 256 MB RAM and 80GB HD, I kinda "donated" it to one of my cousins who's in a vocational school.
Everytime I see my dad working in the old PC, I joke him about donating it to the Smithsonian or to an antique shop.

You really believe that! I work at an university, and they still have PCs with Windows 3.0 !!!! The previous university I worked with had PCs with DOS 3.0!
NT 4 Machines at work, damned US government is so far behind!
And they wonder why students "hack" their PCs all the time.
p.d.: Not the whole campus, but some departments are somewhat cheap-minded and they want to "squeeze" the maximum life of their systems. Try to explain "technology development" to those guys!

Yeah, actually your post just reminded me that at home I've also got a boxed copy of Windows /286. LOL those were the days!
I have disks somewhere with Windows 2.01 (I think) ... and I did have disks for Windows 286 & 386 (a lesser known variant) somewhere but I'm buggered if I can find them anywhere. I also have some very old versions of DOS lying around however the only ones I can put my hands on are 5.25" DOS 5.0 although I have a Research Machines version of DOS 3.12.

I use winamp and mozilla firefox with java.
with Irfanview and some other 3rd party tools,
Its a very strong system with a celeron 1ghz and 512mb ram.
As far as im concerned, I wont need to even touch windows 2000 for at least 5 years.
Even then, I'd still stick to 98se cuz its the best OS of the last decade.
Give me DOS anyday NT sucks.

I dont need a swapfile at all.
Instead it starts when memory runs out completely.
I partitioned my 40 gig hdd to keep a separate 2 gigs just in case the paging goes nuts.
I have instant-on memory paging even though my system is running after 0.980 seconds cold boot.
This is as 32 bit as anyone should need at home especially when free personal firewalls are out and better than xp.
like sygate and zonelabs.
AVG Antivirus better than norton and free.
