If your gonna make the switch from gui to console i recommend you use the console as a service. That way itll operate in the background and the console wont be taking up your desktop space.

to those people that need ram you should look in the office max paper on the weekend. i got my 256mb pc2100 kingston for 9.99 each after rebates. i know some people dont like to bother with rebates but i like em. officemax also gives stuff out for free after rebates, but it usually isn't that expensive. at christmas, however, i saw a cd burner, jump drive, leather chair, ram, cds. so it may be worthwhile for you to check out.

What was that program that you used to install it as a service? And refresh my memory on how to install it.

 

Thanks, David

My PII is made mostly parts I already had. Old hard drive, RAM from a previous project, processor pulled from a dead Dell, cables... Dell. All I really had to buy was a board and a case

I bet in the next year, Taz will almost step up to modern times and get a 933MHz PIII. Still less than 1GHz, but a lot faster than what he's been working with :P
