    Actually, Win 9x can handle up to 256MB. Anything more and it's not used efficiently... if at all....

    mjrdink the main reason ppl put down 98/98SE is that they don't set them up properly (see this article for one of the main reasons of instability, http://www.pcscoop.com/software/oses/WINfiles/index.asp ) but I will certainly agree with ya about ME though. :smokin:

    sweet... yeah... i'll keep looking into other options... maybe if i find out enough about what i can solder and i get drunk enough to risk it..... hmmm... ok so maybe drunk isn't a good idea... but maybe i'll try it... just need to find some good articles and some time to read them.
    yeah... i have the 'special' happy visual options turned off. and my theme is just total white windows with black bars... it looks pretty sleek. even if its not 'customized bitmap buttons'.
    and the memory: i just need to find $20 sitting around and then i'll replace the 64MB dimm with a 128 my parents computer has an open slot i can throw the old one into.

    Ok, well just make sure it is compatable with your parents system, or they will be crashing alot.

    no... the dimm is 133/100/66 ... and so is the mobo essentially... the ram is locked at 100 but the fsb for the processor all depends on the processor i have in the board. I could buy a P3 to put in... but i'm too poor. my next investment would be a video card if anything at all after more RAM
