This rig has *always* been ultra hard to install ...
bad news with this fact is that configuration and drivers search and install has always been a PITA
good news was that it was a superb learning tool for me 5-6 years back !!!
I've got, I *think* all the drivers I need now (well, not just those I found this last week, but my own hacked ones on my own DB now I have a working rig again), but it was a battle even to just install vanilla XP 32-bit ...
Performance is still surprisingly smooth, for a single core Socket 939 config.
(haven't used the thing AT ALL for about 5 years)
I'll probably set up Vista x64 at some point, but frankly I just want to leave it as is (AKA - functional) for a little while at least.
Still need to get my principal data out and safe from a failing HDD, which clearly is a priority versus non-XP-ness
