There goes what little respect I had left for you. Oh well.


... What the heck are you smoking?! XP? Jeez.


And you can't overclock a P100 to 166. That's a 60% overclock. It wouldn't handle it, let alone the puny EDO RAM it has.


As for the computer, I don't think you can do much with it. Folding is pointless, as it is too slow to make a difference. The best you could do with it is run it as a file server, a firewall, a router or a print server. Not much other use for it...

you MIGHT be able to turn it into a home made PBX. Check out http://asterisk.org/, im not sure if your machine could handle it but you could always try.

All those things are good for is really DOS games. They're old, but really fun. The only downside to our nice new computers; DOS games run too fast!
