    hm, i've got maybe 75% of the parts for my new computer :) won't have to suffer from the poc 866 anymore, that has lost all sound + took me 2 weeks to figure out how to get my cd-roms back,
    my dad supposedly was going to help me build it, but he has left back to work all the way in taiwan, and i have a pretty good idea on how to, but i was wondering if anyone knows any good in-depth tutorials on putting it together just so i can't screw up

    that's a pretty good one,

    hrrm but i was wondering do you know any other ones with more pictures? so i can get more of a visual

    and maybe a tad more up to date

    if i have a fresh hard drive with nothing on it, can i boot from a cd and install like that from dos when i boot? or do i have to install like 98 and then upgrade like the tutorial says
