    >>> GTA3 is crap? you got some nerve boy!

    You missed my point, I actually said...

    >>> Games are crap.

    ...as in ALL games! After Space Quest, and a brief flirtation with Dune2000, I've never found a game that interested me enough to work out how to play it.

    Oke, theyre capable to open 404 pages,
    All those games run on an everyday pc as well (if configured
    right). Really not a reason to keep 1 for those games.
    Of course 8 years ago 486 ruled the planet, but these days....

    Well I dont know what you could do with all those 486s besides running them in parallel for some intenisve math problem or something.

    I dont need much of the software listed, but since the software is worth more than those parts, I think you got a good deal...

    I cant believe you use ME!!!!!

    Ahh...you're a man after my own heart, Adrian. The only thing I ever use these new games for is when I've exhausted every last possibility of something to do.

    Pentium 1's make good servers, but 486 are really good for nothing
    Don't say that around the four firewalls I got running at work.

    However, you don't need 2000 and XP, use XP.

    I've never been able to get NAV2000 to work with XP.

    Games are crap.

    XP + Office 2000 = good enough.

    What is sad, is the way things are routinely chucked out these days, I can see a genuine Pentium I processor being worth a fortune on some antique program in 50 years.

    Tought NAV 2000 wasnt designed for XP. You need 2002. If I remember correctly that is. Thats why it wont work.
    Such is life.
