    hi mjrdink:D
    just a bit of advice....with your cpu and especially 192mb ram u;d be much better of running windows 98 rather than XP performance wise

    I agree with that as that poor Celery has to push a lot of bloatware with XP. :smokin:

    lol, i run xp on a 300mhz amd k6-2 with 256 mbs of ram..haha, but just gotta turn off the visual stuff =P

    try running win98 se or winME, only thing i liked about winME was its boot times, amazingly fast..well, on my old computer atleast

    : party ha : hahaha! hahah! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! don't make me laugh! windows 98???? windows ME??? don't even mention ME in my presence... it's the WORST operating system every devised and microsoft should castrate itself just for putting it on my computer in the first place... i formatted my hard drive and got rid of the partition that held ME.... and put on Windows 98se...
    i was ok for a while untill i just got sick of it crashing and freezing. PLUS ... little known fact... windows 98 and 95 only use up to 96MB of ram... so no my performance wouldn't increase... when i switched from 98 to 2k w/ ntfs, my computer got 3 times faster.... XP is the same speed as 2k when i don't have all that stupid visual crap activated... and as for the 'bloatware' you can disable it with a little known program thats on your hard drive in XP called services.msc (use the run command) and heres a great site that you can go to that tells you what all the programs do... and what the best thing to do about them is. http://www.blkviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm
    so... i've gotten XP to run alot quicker than 98 or ME ever did... and my computer never crashes either. After i hooked up my computer to my school network with ME on it i had to reboot almost every half hour. I restart my computer once a week now. :cheers:

    oh yeah... and i still can't get softfsb to work... as far as i can tell the pll file is all good williams ... and i can 'get fsb' with it. but when i change the bus... softfsb counts up to about 4 and then the screen blanks... oh well! guess i'll have to find another way.
