Your not using the latest version of xp (hint hint:cool: )? Well for some reason 98se is like that bad habit, you try to kick it but you find a reason to keep it.


-Chris

PS. I kinda like to try 2000 out but dont have one laying around, to bad....:wail:

Quit bragging Chris!!! LOL...cool machine you got there...must be nice...I am moving along at 700mHz on a Duron chip that I have no idea how to clock (dont' think you can without altering the chip) and about 256MB memory that didn't make a bit of difference in my system until XP. ME didn't seem to know how to handle it...XP can't get enough! Running on cable modem...sorry for those that don't have it yet...it makes a 200 mHz look like a monster!

My computer is little more than a PIII 750 pocket calculator with a 28GB drive, a cable modem and a nice big plasma screen. I wish I could be bothered to go out and replace the grafix card.
